Details

A shining sun smiles in the realm of Maya mysticism, its rays brightening corn cobs guarded by four animal deities. Chaac Mol adorns the sun's face as Georgina A. Tagle casts its image in the ceramic traditions of her native Otumba. Tagle incorporates Maya motifs found in the pyramids of the Yucatan peninsula as she blends her own ingenuity, her family's trade, and her country's tradition. A warming addition to any patio décor.

Cabrera works with a special clay sent to her by her relatives from her natal Otumba. The clay comprises of three different types of clay blended with plumilla (the flower from reeds along the local riverbanks). Once the clay has taken form, it is left to dry in the sun for up to five days before baking at approximately 450° C. Finally, Cabrera uses acrylics to hand-paint the piece, providing the adequate accents for the viewer to appreciate the impressive symbols of a long admired civilization.

This arrived in perfect condition and is just as pictured. Adding different amounts of water changes the pitch of the whistle.
