Details

Depicting a Mayan myth from ancient times, this ceramic mask from Mexico features hand-painted designs that are full of life, presented by artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association. Included in the mask is 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 Mayan imagery, the sun and the moon are often associated with the tortoise, shown here on the surface of this beautiful mask that brings a touch of pre-Hispanic culture to any home.

This piece is beautiful, sturdy, heavy and an absolute winner when it comes to conversation starters. Delivery was SUPER FAST and came with a personalized thank you note from the artist. Novica and the attached artists will always get my business when it comes to stylized pieces like this. Love it!

"Fantastica scultura !"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ancora una volta ho acquistato da questo fantastico artista e le mie aspettative non sono state deluse. Il cane guida azteco è ancora più bello visto da vicino. La fotografia non valorizza la sua bellezza. Grazie mille per le magnifiche opere e la cura nei dettagli. Sono sicura che acquisterò ancora . Un Saluto dallItalia !
