Details

Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association are inspired by the concept of duality in Aztec spirituality and art for the design of this mask. "Existential duality between life and death is at the root of all conflict within oneself, and in relationship with others. We are born with both impulses, that of living and evolving, and that of dying," explain the Mexican artisans. Experts in pre-Hispanic art, the artisans craft a ceramic mask in which the green side of the face symbolizes life, and the other represents a skull. An ornate headdress with serpents, an eagle and two suns underscore the divine theme of this mask.

"Angel Cerons precious art piece blesses my home."

As many times as my eyes scanned all the art pieces available on Novicas site, again and again I returned to Angel Cerons Aztec Duality. The meaning of the mask as well as its beauty spoke to me, captivated me. And when the two I ordered arrived at my home and I saw them in their three dimensional beauty, I appreciated their sacredness even more. They now hover above the entry to my home, blessing all who enter it.

"I wanted to keep it for myself"

But I gave it as a gift to someone while showing Xoloitzcuintli dogs. So it was just perfect.

"Company for You"

I believe this dog is a portal to the deceased loved ones undergrouund. There have been some deaths in the family so I memorialize them with these dogs who protect those in the afterlife. There are more types and I have more. They are on a Loved Ones table top of a cabinet. It soothes me.

"GREAT ADDITION TO MY COLLECTION"

I have a fairly large collection of ancient pre-Columbian statues and pottery from the Incas, Mayas and Aztecs. Many of these items I have obtained from Novica over the years. Outstanding quality from local artisans, very good delivery and never a breakage on these fragile items. There are many more items on the list I would like to acquire - but am not rich enough to do so, have to go slowly over time.
