Details

Images of the past are immortalized through the fine ceramic work of Georgina Cabrera as she exults the art, symbols and beliefs of Mexico's great pre-Hispanic heritage. Eclipses were greatly feared by the Aztecs - it was believed that great Tzitzimime or monsters would descend upon earth and cause great havoc. A solar eclipse was referred to as Tonatiuh quallo, "the Sun is eaten," and people would come out screaming and shouting - sacrificing their own limbs and ears. Cabrera blends her artistic intuition with the beliefs of tradition resulting in a ceramic piece certain to enhance a patio décor.

Based in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Cabrera works with a special clay sent to her by her relatives from her natal Otumba. The clay comprises of three different types of clay blended with plumilla (the flower from reeds along the local riverbanks). Once the clay has taken form, it is left to dry in the sun for up to five days before baking at 450° C approximately. Finally, Cabrera uses acrylics to hand-paint the piece, providing the adequate accents for the viewer to appreciate the impressive symbols of a long admired civilization.

A proud Cabrera states: "I love to transmit my ideas through my products for people to get to know my work."

This arrived in perfect condition and is just as pictured. Adding different amounts of water changes the pitch of the whistle.

"Inspiring"

The craftsmanship and design of these masks are amazing. They gaze down on me as I write at my desk in challenge and invitation as only art that draws on ancient traditions seems to do. Amazing work!
