Details

Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association sculpt this highly detailed ceramic image of Centéotl based on his depiction in the Codex Borgia. Believed to have been written prior to the Spanish conquest, this codex receives its name after Cardinal Stefano Borgia who owned it. To the Aztecs, Centéotl was a unique deity in that he didn't dominate a particular element. However, he was regarded as the god of corn, which is the staple food of the Americas where it grows bountiful. Corn is also more resistant to plagues and changes in the weather; therefore the Aztecs believed corn to be a gift from the gods and thus sacred. In this ceramic sculpture by Cerón, Centéotl wears an impressive headdress with corn raising a reliquary offering to the heavens.

This statuette is really well made. Love the pot belly and the way he looks up as if howling at the moon. Very realistic. It is a nice weight . Arrived safely and sooner than anticipated. Love Novica and the fine artisan wares it brings to us.

"Unique, beautiful ceramic plaque"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was looking for something special for my patio. I needed it to be outdoor. This is perfect! It arrived before i thought it would by at least a week. I am in canada so everything takes longer. I am trying to be patient to hang it up as we are just in first bit of spring. The detail, the quality is there. I couldnt have asked for a better addition to my new patio.
