Mexican Ceramic Skull Sculpture Handcrafted Folk Art, Edition 1/30

About

Imagine a drink only drunk in weddings between royalty, accompanying the dead in their transit to the underworld, and celebrating military victories or successful commercial expeditions…This is the source of Mexican ceramist Omar Hernadez’s interest in cacao and its role in Mesoamerican culture. While today it’s a traditional drink, in prehispanic culture chocolate wasn’t within the reach of the common person. If only the dead lived today. -Materials and technique- By using fine white and Oaxacan Donaji clay, Omar creates authentic reproductions of Mexican native cacao cobs (mazorcas de cacao criollo) in ceramic. Omar uses natural pigments from soil minerals & oxides to decorate each piece. He finds these in the different types of soil near his house in the Central Valley of Oaxaca and in the Mixtec Region on his routine walks. He says, “Sometimes I stop in the highway to collect a bit of soil when I see a beautiful color. We just find each other on the way!” Made in Oaxaca, México Limited edition of 30 skulls *Due to the handcrafted nature of our products, slight variations enhance authenticity.
