Details

Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association create an original mask that blends elements of both Maya and Aztec art and culture. The face depicts the Sun Jaguar of the underworld seen in an incense burner from the Classic Maya site of Palenque. The mouth makes reference to Chac, the Maya rain god. Covered with skulls, the headdress is an interpretation of the Aztec tzompantli, a rack where the heads of sacrificial victims were displayed as an offering to the gods.

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.
