Details

Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association replicate a ceramic vessel of a playful xoloitzcuintli pup, dated sometime between 200 - 600 A.D. It was originally found in a tumba de tiro burial place, so-called because it features interconnecting traits from diverse pre-Hispanic cultures from the Mexican states of Jalisco, Nayarit and Colima. They believed the xoloitzcuintli transported the souls of the dead to the underworld. Officially certified by the Mexican government to replicate pre-Hispanic art, the artisans craft the ceramic sculpture with faithful details.

I ordered a statute of the Maya rain god Chaac, as he was by far my favorite deity I learned of while studying the Maya. The statue is absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend Angel Cerón's work to anyone!

Oscar

Very satisfied with my “Coatlicue”, definitely an astonishing piece. Thank you a lot Angel!
