Details

Seated obediently, this plump little dog replicates those found in shaft tombs throughout Western Mexico. Georgina Cabrera depicts the xoloitzcuintle, 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. The cheerful hairless pup with wrinkled skin takes shape as a terracotta ocarina, a whistle-like flute believed to have been used in ancient ceremonies.

Beautiful, perfect work by Georgina. I have just purchased the Fire Jaguar centerpiece. A few months back I received her Quetzalcoatl incense burner and continue to marvel at the power and beauty of it.

Me encanta tanto la mascara ceramica Vida y Muerte de Georgina Cabrera, con su atencion al detalle y calidad excepcional. Es una hermosa adicion a mi coleccion de mascaras prehispanicas. Espero la re-edicion de la mascara Tlaloc. Me gustaria ver otras de los personajes de los mitos aztecas. Muchas gracias.
