Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association are inspired by the concept of duality in Aztec spirituality and art for the design of this mask.

We are born with both impulses, that of living and evolving, and that of dying," explain the Mexican artisans.

An ornate headdress with serpents, an eagle and two suns underscore the divine theme of this mask.
