World Menagerie

Anmie Unique Archaeological Ceramic Dog Sculpture World Menagerie

Wagging its tail, this plump little dog replicates those found in shaft tombs throughout western Mexico. Angel Cerón depicts the itzcuintli, a cheerful, barkless species prized by ancient man. Sculpted in clay as funerary offerings, they accompanied their masters in death to aid the soul in crossing rivers of blood along the road of the dead. This is a replica of an archeological piece from Comala, Colima. World Menagerie
