Details

Standing on three jaguar heads, this vessel honors the legacy of El Salvador's Maya culture. "This is a replica from the Maya Pipil group, and we used the same ceramic techniques they develop over a thousand years ago," explains Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza. The terracotta vessel is painted by hand with dyes obtained from achiote seeds, as well as with acrylic paints.

Nice mask but way smaller than I thought it would be. Little pricey for the size in my opinion.
