Museum Quality Jaguar Warrior
I received Face of a Warrior today and truly love it. Jose Canil Ramos is a very talented artist. This mask will have a prominent place in my house and will be greatly admired by everyone who lays eyes on it. There are scores of jaguar warriors out there created by some very talented artists. I have another jaguar warrior mask, which I also love, but this mask is more dramatic and compelling. When I saw it, I had to have it. Kudos to a skillful and talented carver!

"Kinich Ahau, the lord with a solar face, is the Maya god of sun and music. He is married to Ixchel (the moon) and he is regarded as the god of gods and lord of war. He settled disputes and distributed land amongst the different villages," says Angel Cerón of this ceramic mask replica. "Kinich Ahau is usually portrayed with jaguar ears and T-shaped teeth. His beard symbolizes sunrays and big, almost square-shaped eyes." Cerón is oficially licensed to reproduce this extraordinary replica of the mask found in Palenque (Chiapas) and dated 600-900 AD.
Hand Painted Ceramic Wall Mask, "Maya Nobleman"$59.99
With eyes closed, a man's features radiate peace. Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza works in ceramic to create a replica of the funeral masks used by the ancient Maya.

Stimulating communication as well as trade, merchants were a highly important part of ancient Mayan society.
