Details

Stimulating communication as well as trade, merchants were a highly important part of ancient Mayan society. El Salvador's Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza creates this Mayan merchant mask, which is handcrafted from ceramic and painted by hand with natural brown and red pigments derived from the achiote plant. The merchant wears face paint, a hat, and round earrings. A nylon cord on the back allows it to be hung on a wall.

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

"Very decorative !"

I am officially a Mayan sculpture junkie. I cant seem to have enough, I am very protective of my treasures, and when my husband broke this piece, I could not speak to him for a bit. He fixed it, but its not the same. I still love it though !!
