Details

Seeming to laugh, a pre-Hispanic pup wags a cheerful greeting from the distant past. His rounded belly and short legs are characteristic of the ceramic dogs found in shaft tombs throughout what is now the state of Colima. These exceptional figurines are highly prized, and represent scenes of daily life in pre-Hispanic Mexico. Georgina Cabrera recreates the canine as a terracotta ocarina, a whistle-like flute believed to have been used in ancient ceremonies.

"Unique and whimsical!"

This arrived in perfect condition and is just as pictured. Adding different amounts of water changes the pitch of the whistle.

"Inspiring"

The craftsmanship and design of these masks are amazing. They gaze down on me as I write at my desk in challenge and invitation as only art that draws on ancient traditions seems to do. Amazing work!
