Details

Seated with legs crossed, a man with the head of a bird holds an artifact depicting a cross. This cross shape forms windows in several structures in the archaeological site of Palenque, in Southwestern Mexico, and a glyph referring to the birdman is found on stelae there. Working in ceramic, artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association create a polychrome replica of an image discovered in Tomb One. The original is on display in the museum at the site itself.

"Perfect and Precious"

The Colima Hound is so cute and it was going to be a gift, but I have decided to keep it. Excellent craftsmanship and a great addition to my Mexican decor. Thank you Angel Caron, continue with your excellent work.

"Cool Skull"

Tlaloc is one of my favorite gods, so having a skull with a Tlaloc motif is greatly appreciated. Looks cool in my room, when the light catches the skull it does look like the image on the description.
