Details

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 God of death."

Wonderful sculpture of a really gnarly God. This guy overlooks my bed. Reminds me of my mortality. Recently learned I have liver cancer, so helps me focus on the here and now.

"Nice piece, well packaged"

Because of the delicacy of this item, I fully expected it to be broken when it arrived, but it was very carefully padded and packaged and arrived intact. I was very pleasantly surprised, and I appreciate the effort that was made to insure its safe arrival. It's a nicely executed piece, and I'm glad I ordered it.

"God of Death"

I love the statue as it represents how people use to think. My wife and I have traveled to Mexico many time and visited most of the sites and have been amazed at size of the construction. Dick

"Beautiful!"

It's smaller and more detailed that I expected. I've seen small sculptures in Mexico, and they weren't anything too exciting. This one is absolutely beautiful. Very happy to have bought it.

ANGEL CERON IS A WONDERFUL ARTIST! HIS PASSION IS PRE-HISPANIC CULTURAL HERITAGE! THIS MOTHER DOG IS SO CHARMING WITH HER WRIGGLING PUPPIES! I LOOK FORWARD TO PURCHASING MORE PIECES OF HIS WORK! WARM REGARDS, GLORIA WOLPER

Brendan

I ordered a statute of the Maya rain god Chaac, as he was by far my favorite deity I learned of while studying the Maya. The statue is absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend Angel Cerón's work to anyone!

Oscar

Very satisfied with my “Coatlicue”, definitely an astonishing piece. Thank you a lot Angel!
