When I saw this photo in the newspaper, I exclaimed "Darkseid!" Is it possible that Jack Kirby used this statue as inspiration for his classic character's design? (Maybe you'd like to read this article and this one about the Olmec stone head.)

You can view a beautiful pencil drawing of Darkseid you may not have previously seen by going here. It's from the collection of super-collector Tod Seisser and I encourage you to peruse the entirety of Mr. Seisser's comicartfans gallery rooms to see an amazing treasure trove of Kirby originals.
