Details

The most important deity in the Aztec pantheon, Tezcatlipoca, or "Smoking Mirror," is also one of the oldest, first appearing during the pre-Mexica Teotihuacan era. He is the god of fertility, of the wind, of life, of maize and of agriculture, and is said to have taught humans how to measure time and create the calendar. He is considered the antagonist of Quetzalcoatl, yet in later accounts, Quetzalcoatl is described as the black Tezcatlipoca.

Working in polychrome ceramic, Angel Cerón depicts Tezcatlipoca as his nahual, or animal counterpart — a jaguar named Tepeyollotli.

I have now purchased 8 of these figures by Angel Ceron. 4 for my collection and 4 as gifts. They have all been stunning. The persons who have received them as gifts were all very impressed as well.

Quality product. Well made. Faithful to on-line description. Colors are more muted that in the photo - be aware. Overall, pleased with purchase. Shipping preparation was good and no breakage in shipment/delivery.

This is as nice as it looks online. It is very well done and looks as if it had been made in Classic culture times.

"Ancient Dogs"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought three of these Aztec dog statues. All very good quality and I love them. My guests have always made wonderful comments. The little ones I have in my living room in different locations. My favorite is a larger dog laying on its belly s which is on my glass table in my covered patio.

"Very disappointed in this catrina"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered this catrina for my wife for Mother s Day and when she opened it the figurine wasn t even complete. The face, arms, hands and flowers were not even painted. They were in black primer or the ceramic material. Not sure which. This was very disappointing. Obviously this was not an oversight. The product was shipped half finished in order to meet the Mother s Day delivery deadline. My wife was very disappointed as well. What we received looks nothing like what I ordered. I have ordered from Novica in the past but no longer will purchase from them.
