Details

Baying at the moon, this plump little dog with wrinkled skin replicates those found in shaft tombs throughout western Mexico. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association depict the xoloitzcuintli, a cheerful, barkless species prized by ancient man. Sculpted in clay as funerary offerings, they accompanied their masters in death to aid the soul in crossing rivers of blood along the road of the dead. This is a replica of a museum piece from Comala, Colima.

"Mexican memory-holder"

I love Mexico's ancient cultures, archaeology sites, and handicrafts, and I've adopted "Dia de los muertos" as a tradition for remembering my parents, grandparents, and ancestors. As a dog lover, I wanted a representation of my old canine friends, as well, and this figure guards their memory on my Day of the Dead altar and on my bookcase year-round. It has very special meaning for me.

"Ancient Artwork"

Have always had a great interest in Pre-Hispanic history of the Americas. Showing the great artwork of just one of the great ancient cultures from that part of the world.

"You can never have enough!"

This sculptures are amazing, the level of detail, and character that the faces have, is just amazing. I will continue to buy these sculptures! This artist is fantastic, and they are my favourite Xolo sculptures of all time!

Brendan

I ordered a statute of the Maya rain god Chaac, as he was by far my favorite deity I learned of while studying the Maya. The statue is absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend Angel Cerón's work to anyone!

Oscar

Very satisfied with my “Coatlicue”, definitely an astonishing piece. Thank you a lot Angel!
