A Great Reminder of my Visit
A beautifully completed piece of art. It will give me wonderful memories of my 4-week holiday in Mexico.
Beautiful design, workmanship, vivid colors!
This pillow cover is beautifully made, with a sophisticated and vibrant design. I highly recommend work of art.
Another Beautiful Mask by Jose Canil Ramos
This mask is absolutely gorgeous. It is my new favorite mask. (The photograph doesn?t do it justice. The mask is a much lighter orange than what is shown). I now have a collection of six of the artist?s masks and I love them all.

Hand Painted Ceramic Mayan Turtle Mask from Mexico, "Sun and Moon Tortoise"$39.99
Depicting a Mayan myth from ancient times, this ceramic mask from Mexico features hand-painted designs that are full of life, presented by artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association. Included in the mask is the myth of the tortoise, which says that during the destruction of the world, the sun and the moon both fled beneath the shell of a tortoise, which saved their lives. In much of Mayan imagery, the sun and the moon are often associated with the tortoise, shown here on the surface of this beautiful mask that brings a touch of pre-Hispanic culture to any home.
Red Deer Theme Maya Backstrap Black Cotton Cushion Cover, "Red Maya Deer"
Precise geometric motifs surround two red deer in an exquisite design. From talented members of Women United for Artisan Development, this cushion cover is woven by hand on a backstrap loom. Cording defines the borders, and the back is solid black.
Should one of the threads snag, the artisans suggest you pull it back into place from the back of the fabric with a fine crochet hook.
Antiqued Ceramic Vessel Maya Art (large), "Pibil Jaguar"
Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza celebrates the art of the ancient Maya with the original design of this ceramic vessel. Decorated with a jaguar's head on the lid and classic glyphs on the body, the vessel is crafted by hand with the same ceramic techniques developed by the Maya Pibil people. Little is known about them, other than that the Pibil were a warrior and migrant community that came to El Salvador from Mexico. This vessel is treated to achieve an antiqued look, featuring red and orange hues obtained from seeds.
Maya Backstrap Loom Bird Theme Red Cotton Cushion Cover, "Red Quiche Birds"$51.99
Precise geometric motifs alternate with birds in an exquisite design. From talented members of Women United for Artisan Development, the cushion cover is woven by hand on a backstrap loom. Cording defines the borders, and the back is solid red. "We love birds," the artisans confide. "This design was woven by women who live in Quiché, a forested region in western Guatemala."
Should one of the threads snag, they suggest you pull it back into place from the back of the fabric with a fine crochet hook.
