Details

Baying at the moon, 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 peoples. 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 canine reproduction becomes a terracotta ocarina, a whistle-like flute believed to have been used in pre-Hispanic 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.
