Details

Known as Aztecs, the Mexica people practiced ritual sacrifice. Death cult priests, dagger in hand, assisted the victims in their supernatural transformation into both god and governor who were transported to a space and time where all is calm and the cosmos is in perfect order. Drawing on a lifelong study of Mexico's pre-Hispanic cultures, artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association create a mask of their own design to represent this concept.

"Fantastica scultura !"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ancora una volta ho acquistato da questo fantastico artista e le mie aspettative non sono state deluse. Il cane guida azteco è ancora più bello visto da vicino. La fotografia non valorizza la sua bellezza. Grazie mille per le magnifiche opere e la cura nei dettagli. Sono sicura che acquisterò ancora . Un Saluto dallItalia !

"Matte, air-brushed finish"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This Catrina is beautifully painted, the work is lovely, but I am disappointed that it is painted with an air brush technique in a matte finish. I have several hand painted Catrinas with glossy, very detailed designs. If I had known what I was receiving, I would not be quite so displeased. It is difficult to enjoy this piece, because I feel misled by the item description. Not visible in the photograph either, the omission that this piece is not painted in a traditional manner is contrary to expectations.

"Huge fan of Angels work"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My father collects all of Angel Cerons work. He has several urns and some masks. He didnt have this bat urn so I got it for him for Christmas. He was thrilled. He really appreciates the fine detail in Angels pieces.
