favorite ceramic mask
it is made so intricately - almost antique .... i have it in my library - but would look beautiful in any room
I absolutely love my Dragon Scream. It is even more impressive in person (of course) and could not be more beautiful. I love the expression and the painting is stellar. Its helped to move me a bit closer to being a dragon collector of sorts. I highly recommend this amazing artists work. I am quite sure you will be as pleased as I am!
I have purchased a number of these beautifully carved and painted masks and I am so pleased with Mr. Gleeful. He exudes exactly the happy sentiment that I needed to add and I smile every time I see him. Such wonderful artistry. I am sure you would love him as much as I do!

Life and Death Pre-Hispanic Mask Ceramic Replica, "Aztec Duality"$49.99
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. "Existential duality between life and death is at the root of all conflict within oneself, and in relationship with others. We are born with both impulses, that of living and evolving, and that of dying," explain the Mexican artisans. Experts in pre-Hispanic art, the artisans craft a ceramic mask in which the green side of the face symbolizes life, and the other represents a skull. An ornate headdress with serpents, an eagle and two suns underscore the divine theme of this mask.
