Handmade Mexican Aztec Ceramic Sculpture, "Aztlan Warrior"$174.99
Angel Cerón is inspired by the legend of Aztlán for the design of this extraordinary sculpture. Meaning "the place of herons," Aztlán was a prophesized islet where the Mexicas were told to build their city, the Great Tenochtitlan – at modern day Mexico City. The brave warrior wears a bird headdress with a fish in its beak. In his hands he holds a human head and an eagle. Incredibly detailed, the sculpture is crafted of ceramic.
Signed Ceramic Aztec Sculpture from Mexico, "Aztec Deities"$337.99
By Angel Cerón, this ceramic sculpture interprets an image depicted in the Magliabechiano Codex from the late Post Classic period. It reveals elements of both the legendary Feathered Serpent Quetzalcoatl and also of the wind god Ehécatl. This wonderfully detailed Aztec deity wears a necklace of seashells and an elaborate headdress, and a bird alights on his hand.
