Collectible Maya Ceramic Sculpture Museum Replica, "Maya Lady of Weaves"
Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association replicate the vivid sculpture of a Maya woman, believed to be related to the cult of the goddess of weavers. The original dates circa 600 - 800 AD and was found in the Island of Jaina, off the coast of Campeche. "The Maya named this island which means 'house of water' and turned it into a commercial center," the artisans explain. "Renamed Jaina by the Spanish, the island is now famous for its myriad Maya tombs filled with a variety of statuettes and utensils, as was their custom. The fact that the original sculpture portrayed a woman with an elaborate headdress and detailed garments suggests she represented a person from the aristocracy."
Maya Lord of Rain Ceramic Replica Sculpture, "Lord Chaac"
Chaac, the Maya lord of rain, sits on his throne with arms crossed in front at his chest, regarded as an unusual depiction for this deity which artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association replicate from a sculpture dated 250-800 AD. This anthropomorphic image fuses reptilian or amphibian characteristics with that of an elderly human. The artisans sculpt this ceramic piece with sublime detail, including a throne separately from the sculpture.
Maya Archaeology Replica Palenque Birdman Ceramic Sculpture, "Maya Birdman from Palenque"
Seated with legs crossed, a man with the head of a bird holds an artifact depicting a cross. This cross shape forms windows in several structures in the archaeological site of Palenque, in Southwestern Mexico, and a glyph referring to the birdman is found on stelae there. Working in ceramic, artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association create a polychrome replica of an image discovered in Tomb One. The original is on display in the museum at the site itself.
