Details

Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association replicate a ceramic vessel of a playful xoloitzcuintli pup, dated sometime between 200 - 600 A.D. It was originally found in a tumba de tiro burial place, so-called because it features interconnecting traits from diverse pre-Hispanic cultures from the Mexican states of Jalisco, Nayarit and Colima. They believed the xoloitzcuintli transported the souls of the dead to the underworld. Officially certified by the Mexican government to replicate pre-Hispanic art, the artisans craft the ceramic sculpture with faithful details.

The ancient Colima people had such a great sense of humor about their dogs! This is a beautiful example.

Love the detail and workmanship of this mask. This my second purchase from Angel. The other mask was purchased years ago and adds character to my eclectic home with many items from Novica.
