The mystique of the Aztecs includes the cardinal points, masterfully replicated in this wall cross by Saul Montesinos. According to Aztec cosmogony, the cardinal points direct paths to Tlapcopa (east) known as the "place of light" associated with sunrise, and Cihuatlampa (west) known as the "direction of women." Mictlampa (north) was regarded as the direction of the dead, and Huitzlampa (south) was the "place of thorns." The center symbolizes one's position in relation to the universe, the path within. Montesinos paints this multicolored ceramic wall cross by hand with extraordinary detail.

"Very dissatisfied"

I am waiting for Novica to contact me regarding the return of this item. The top and bottom painting details of the stems (arms) of the cross are off-center and crooked, with some of the detail falling off the side of the cross. The actual piece is also not symmetrical.
