    About this item: Depicting a Mayan myth from ancient times, this ceramic mask from Mexico features hand-painted designs that are full of life, presented by Angel Ceron.

In much of Mayan imagery, the sun and the moon are often associated with the tortoise, shown here on the surface of this beautiful mask that brings a touch of pre-Hispanic culture to any home.Hand-crafted item -- color, size and/or motif may vary slightly

    About our Artist: Angel Ceron comes from a family with generations of artisan experience. He learned the family ceramic techniques from his father, Antonio Ceron Orta, a renowned artisan.
