Details

Still performed in Mexico, la danza del tigre (tiger dance) has been performed by Náhuatl communities since before the arrival of the Spanish. The intention is to appease Tlaloc, the rain god. Today, the characteristic dancer's mask inspires this fabulous necklace by Kunio Takeda. In his original sterling silver design, Takeda crafts a stylized tiger with its tongue sticking out, zigzag fangs and lopsided eyes. The necklace features hammered textures and an oxidized, aged finish.

.925 Sterling silver.
