Statue of mysterious woman with ‘Star Wars’-like headdress found in Mexico

A 500-year-old statue of a mysterious woman wearing a large, “Star Wars”-like headdress has been discovered in central Mexico, according to Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

The 6.5-foot-tall (2 meters) limestone statue depicts a young woman dressed in elaborate clothes and jewelry, including a circular pendant, known as an “oyohualli,” on a thick necklace; tassel-like earrings; and a headdress that rivals the head ornamentation of “Star Wars” Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi apprentice turned warrior in the sci-fi series.
