Maya God of Sun Ceramic Wall Mask Replica Crafted by Hand, "Maya Lord Kinich Aha"$87.99
"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.
