Details

Depicting a Mayan legend from ancient times, this ceramic mask from Mexico features hand-painted designs that are full of life. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association narrate the myth of the tortoise, which says that during the destruction of the world, the sun and the moon both fled beneath the shell of a tortoise, which saved their lives. In much of Maya imagery, the sun and the moon are often associated with the tortoise.

"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.
