What does this mean?

Hi Camilla.

This object appears to be another Pre-Columbian head fragment. This one appears to be a female, indicated by the softer features, and necklace. Other similar objects are attributed to the Veracruz culture. However, the hair pattern recalls North African or Middle Eastern head fragment. This hair pattern is not typically found in Pre-Columbian or Central American objects. This does not mean the object is completely suspicious but it may need extensive research. My best estimation is that it is likely a transition object. The estimate is based on Veracruz face fragments.
