Huge fan of Angels work
My father collects all of Angel Cerons work. He has several urns and some masks. He didnt have this bat urn so I got it for him for Christmas. He was thrilled. He really appreciates the fine detail in Angels pieces.
Work of Art
This is the second piece I ordered from the artists. I love the Tree of Life. You appreciate this piece when you see it up close. Love the Jade and the detail is wonderful.
Angel Ceron Artisan Association Ceramic replicas and figurines

Collectible Aztec Ceramic Sculpture Museum Replica, "Pensive Tonatiuh"$107.99
Sitting pensively on rocks, Tonatiuh looks to the horizon in this ceramic sculpture by artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association, who are formally authorized to replicate pre-Hispanic museum pieces. Their care for detail is admirable as they craft this loyal replica of the original, which is dated between 1325 and 1521 A.D., and is regarded as unique, in that the Aztec deity is represented in human form. In the Aztec Mexica Parthenon, Tonatiuh is the sun god, leader of the heavens. According to legend, when the deities needed to find a sun god when the previous one was killed and became the moon, they considered two deities, Tecusistécatl who was rich, yet cowardly and proud, and Nanahuatzin who was poor yet of noble heart. They both had to pass the fire test, and Tecusistécatl went first. Unable to withstand the heat he leapt out, and when Nanahuatzin got into the fire, a spark reached the skies bringing light. Thus Nanahuatzin became Tonatiuh, the Fifth Sun.

This cross shape forms windows in several structures in the archaeological site of Palenque, in Southwestern Mexico, and a glyph referring to the birdman is found on stelae there.

Collectible Museum Replica Ceramic Sculpture (Medium), "Eagle Warrior"$149.99
The brave eagle warriors of 1325-1521 AD inspire Angel Cerón in the crafting of this sculpture. Only the sons of Mexica noble families were admitted into this exclusive army, regarded as daytime (solar) soldiers. To obtain this title, they had to capture up to five prisoners. Cerón depicts the warrior with his head turned sideways, as custom dictated to depict high ranking characters. Crafting the sculpture from ceramic with colorful feathers and an eagle headdress, the Mexican artisan portrays the courageous warrior with a shield and a , a type of sword that was encrusted with sharp obsidian shards.
