the Olmecs Civilization is one of the first civilizations in America. They thrived between 1200 to 400 BC and settled in the forest, savannas and rivers of the Gulf in Mexico. I think the Olmecs Heads are from Southern Varacruz and Tabasco. I think i heard about them being from there, so this is just a guess.

From looking at the Olmecs I can see that the head of it is made of stone. It also looks like it could be perceived to be a male. The reason because of how the Olmecs looks in the face. I also think that its came from China

  Luis Gallegos wrote @

I think that if it came from Mexico then most likely it was made from clay. I think that they are males. It looks like they are wearing some type of helmet. i think it came from some ancient civilization. Maybe it was traded to Mexico.

  stephanie guardia wrote @

I say that it was made in Mexico because long ago all of there sculptures were made out of rocks. I think it’s a male maybe an important symbol of a god or a great leader. It might be made of a special kind of rock . I’m very amazed by the features on the Olmec head.This is what I think about the Olmec statue.
