This little figurine reminds me on the main carving on the sungate in Tiahuanacu.
Please have a look at the very technical looking helmet and the rather small body-type. These two traits can be seen throughout the "gods" of South America.
Deformed skulls are pretty common in Bolivie and Peru. Wanted the priests of the ancient people look there "gods" in the olden days?
But not only skull deformations are on display. Those skulls you see here had skillfull operations performed on them! The wounds show signs of scaring. That means that the patient survived the operation. Very similar skulls can be found in Egypt and other parts of Africa.

Look at this depiction of a wheel. Please compare the link to the famous "Mechanism of Antikythera" from Greece. I will be writing more about the Anthikythera Mechanism on here in the future.
