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.

This is as nice as it looks online. It is very well done and looks as if it had been made in Classic culture times.

"Ancient Dogs"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought three of these Aztec dog statues. All very good quality and I love them. My guests have always made wonderful comments. The little ones I have in my living room in different locations. My favorite is a larger dog laying on its belly s which is on my glass table in my covered patio.

"Very disappointed in this catrina"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered this catrina for my wife for Mother s Day and when she opened it the figurine wasn t even complete. The face, arms, hands and flowers were not even painted. They were in black primer or the ceramic material. Not sure which. This was very disappointing. Obviously this was not an oversight. The product was shipped half finished in order to meet the Mother s Day delivery deadline. My wife was very disappointed as well. What we received looks nothing like what I ordered. I have ordered from Novica in the past but no longer will purchase from them.
