Details

Grasping a snake, an Aztec priest wears a skull mask while other skulls appear in his hand and on his ankle. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association convey their own conception of the leader responsible for the ritual of human sacrifice. "The Aztecs believed that this helped settle an ancient debt mankind had with the gods," the Mexican artisans explain.

"Cool Skull"

Tlaloc is one of my favorite gods, so having a skull with a Tlaloc motif is greatly appreciated. Looks cool in my room, when the light catches the skull it does look like the image on the description.

I enjoy this piece immensely. It holds my art pencils and graces my studio desk and is a wonderful conversation starter but mostly it is just amazing all on its own.
