Details

By artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association, this frightening figure depicts Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of death. Represented as half man, half skeleton, he makes a menacing gesture with long, claw-like nails, and his liver hangs from the thoracic cage. The artisans work in clay to replicate an image discovered in the House of the Eagles within the Templo Mayor of Tenochtitlan, an archaeological site in Mexico City.

"Aztec God of death."

Wonderful sculpture of a really gnarly God. This guy overlooks my bed. Reminds me of my mortality. Recently learned I have liver cancer, so helps me focus on the here and now.

"Fantastico !"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ho acquistato per la prima volta da Angel Ceron. Trovo la sua arte stupenda perch? amo la tradizione del Messico. La statua ? ancora pi? bella della foto che non rende giustizia ai particolari. Tutto arrivato in Italia in meno di una settimana prima di Natale. Sono sicura che acquister? di nuovo da Angel Ceron. Grazie mille per la tua arte ! Saluti dallItalia

Love the fine craftmanship of this statue. As an artist myself, I appreciate the intricacies involved in the work-and the fingers, etc.. and other more detailed aspect of this statue are so very well done!

I love the statue as it represents how people use to think. My wife and I have traveled to Mexico many time and visited most of the sites and have been amazed at size of the construction. Dick

This statuette is really well made. Love the pot belly and the way he looks up as if howling at the moon. Very realistic. It is a nice weight . Arrived safely and sooner than anticipated. Love Novica and the fine artisan wares it brings to us.

"Unique, beautiful ceramic plaque"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was looking for something special for my patio. I needed it to be outdoor. This is perfect! It arrived before i thought it would by at least a week. I am in canada so everything takes longer. I am trying to be patient to hang it up as we are just in first bit of spring. The detail, the quality is there. I couldnt have asked for a better addition to my new patio.
