Details

Contributing to the administration of the kingdom, nobles were an important and exalted part of ancient Mayan culture. El Salvador's Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza creates this Mayan noble mask, which is handcrafted from ceramic and painted by hand with natural brown and red pigments derived from the achiote plant. The noble wears a feathery headdress and round earrings. A nylon cord on the back allows it to be hung on a wall.

"A handsome piece!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is my second purchase from the wonderful artist Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza. He crafts powerful Mayan replicas that look authentic and are so beautiful. This three inch tall miniature mask is detailed and noble looking. I am a huge fan of Mayan and Aztec art. My only complaint is that it is difficult to hang up due to where the holes are placed. It takes patience. I finally placed it in a display cabinet with other Native American and Pre-Columbian pieces I collect.
