Details

Holding an ear of corn in his teeth, this plump little dog replicates those found in shaft tombs throughout western Mexico and especially in the state of Colima. Angel Cerón depicts the itzcuintli, a cheerful, barkless species prized by ancient man. Sculpted in clay as funerary offerings, they accompanied their masters in death to aid the soul in crossing rivers of blood along the road of the dead.

"Low-maintenance loyal little dog"

I got this dog for my son who wants a dog so strongly, but lives in a small apartment in New York City. This dog is alive! It seems to be offering his love and playfulness with his piece of corn every time we look at it, and its sturdy body shows his complete loyalty. It has become part of our family.

"So thrilled to finally have him"

I have worked in animal rescue for many years, working with troubled dogs, mostly. The instant I saw the little Colima dog, I was reminded of a dear departed little rescued dog, a chubby little dwarf with many problems stemming from previous abuse, who eventually became the most cheerful, resilient little companion. This figure exactly captures his playful presence, from his sturdy little legs to his ample belly. He makes me smile every time I see him. Thanks, Sr. Colon. I will take very good care of him, I promise.

Brendan

I ordered a statute of the Maya rain god Chaac, as he was by far my favorite deity I learned of while studying the Maya. The statue is absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend Angel Cerón's work to anyone!

Oscar

Very satisfied with my “Coatlicue”, definitely an astonishing piece. Thank you a lot Angel!
