Details

Dogs as domesticated pets held a place of importance throughout many of Mexico's pre-Hispanic cultures. Always loyal, the dog was trusted to lead its master's soul to the realm of the dead, for dogs were believed to see spirits. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association craft this extraordinary ceramic sculpture, a replica of the museum piece dated between 950 and 1521 AD.

"Another added to the collection"

I had already purchased one of the funery dogs but had to have another. They are beautifully made and a welcome addition to a home which welcomes rescued dogs and cats, even though they are not ready for the afterlife yet!

"very nice small piece of work"

I bought this dog a few years back and have it on my living room sofa table. It certainly is a eye catcher, from visitors always commenting how nice it is. It is small which is perfect for the small table its on. I also bought one of Angels larger dogs for my outside patio table. I love both of them! Just love both, the quality is very high not cheap at all, really a piece of art. As a chihuahua owner when my visitors see the statues they are pleasantly intrigued.

"Beautiful and authentic "

I have several replicas of the colima dogs of the ancient Maya culture and Angel Ceron's are my favorite! These clay works of art showcase the Xoloitzquintli dog beautifully in all his pre-Columbian glory.

Gloria

ANGEL CERON IS A WONDERFUL ARTIST! HIS PASSION IS PRE-HISPANIC CULTURAL HERITAGE! THIS MOTHER DOG IS SO CHARMING WITH HER WRIGGLING PUPPIES! I LOOK FORWARD TO PURCHASING MORE PIECES OF HIS WORK! WARM REGARDS, GLORIA WOLPER

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!
