Details

Powerful and mystical, the jaguar was believed to reign the underworld. The Maya people called it "Balam," and regarded it as a symbol of power, ruler of night and time. To them, a politician must have the attributes of a jaguar. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association replicate the ceramic stela with astute mastery, featuring the antique stylizations of the Maya codex.

"Amazing Sculpture"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sculpture is beyond anything I expected. The detailed workmanship is absolutely amazing. It arrived within a few days of my order, and I could see that great care had been taken in packing the sculpture to ensure that it arrived safely. The person that will receive this as a gift is very interested in Aztec mythology and history, and Im very excited to give this to him.
