Depicting a Mayan myth from ancient times, this ceramic mask from Mexico features hand-painted designs that are full of life, presented by Angel Ceron. 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.
