Details

Endowed with the power to observe what others cannot, the Mexica or Aztec shaman served as a sort bridge between both worlds — the physical world and the world of the spirit. Thus he developed the ability to cure illness of mind, heart and body. Working in ceramic, artisans from the Angel Ceron Artisan Association create an imaginary shaman in the ancient Mexica style. He wears a headdress and holds a skull, as he can envision the afterlife. On his shoulder, a large owl perches. Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of death was often depicted with an owl.

I m fond of precolombian history and sculpture. This is one on the best representations of Tlaloc,the rain deity that I have ever seen. Praise to the artisan who made it.

"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.
