Popular Aztec Sculpture
Mexico Day of the Dead Ceramic Sculpture, "Aztec God of Death"$77.99
By artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association, this frightening figure depicts Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of death. Represented as half man, half skeleton, he makes a menacing gesture with long, claw-like nails, and his liver hangs from the thoracic cage. The artisans work in clay to replicate an image discovered in the House of the Eagles within the Templo Mayor of Tenochtitlan, an archaeological site in Mexico City.
Aztec Calendar, "Mexica Sun Stone"$19.99
Elisa Camarena recreates the elaborate stone sculpture known as the "Aztec Calendar" or "Sun Stone." Discovered in Mexico City, the original massive stone is on display in the National Museum of Anthropology and History. The Aztecs (or Mexica, as they called themselves) believed that the sun struggled daily against the forces of darkness. They aided the sun through human sacrifices.
The artisan presents the sculpture on a pinewood base.
Aztec Eagle Warrior Ceramic Replica Sculpture from Mexico, "Aztec Caballero Aguila Warrior"$79.99
Believed to channel the courage and might of the eagle, the eagle warrior was highly revered by the Tlaxcalteca people of 600-950, and images of these elite warriors are present in Mexico City's Templo Mayor. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association depict one such warrior wearing talons on his hands, as well as an imposing feathered headdress that represents the powerful bird. The Mexican artisans work in ceramic, giving his polychrome sculpture an aged, antique finish.
