Details

Angel Cerón reveals the presence of Chalchiuhtlicue as he works with clay extracted from the state of Oaxaca. Officially authorized to replicate pre-Hispanic museum pieces, Cerón crafts a detailed statuette of this feminine deity, the female companion of Tlaloc, Aztec god of rain. The original is dated between 1325 and 1521 A.D. Chalchiuhtlicue is the goddess of lakes, rivers, fountains, seas and oceans, and thus the protector of sailors and is also known as "She with the Jade Skirt" symbolizing pure and crystalline running water. "Chalchiuhtlicue is usually depicted holding a staff representing lightning, and a bag of copal, where clouds are formed. She is revered as the female principle of life and patron of midwives and newborns," explains Cerón who though he has officially retired, he continues to pursue his life-long passion for pre-Hispanic art.

"Perfect and Precious"

The Colima Hound is so cute and it was going to be a gift, but I have decided to keep it. Excellent craftsmanship and a great addition to my Mexican decor. Thank you Angel Caron, continue with your excellent work.

"Cool Skull"

Tlaloc is one of my favorite gods, so having a skull with a Tlaloc motif is greatly appreciated. Looks cool in my room, when the light catches the skull it does look like the image on the description.
