Aztec-Inspired Wall Plaque

Special Price $49.99 Regular Price $148.00
Angel, our artisan in Mexico, creates this wall plaque, an accurate representation of the Aztec calendar. Our artisan forms each ceramic plaque in a hand-carved mold, fires and antiques with a unique, hand-painted finish. Our artisan then finishes each piece with a leather loop for hanging. The Aztec calendar known as the Sun Stone was originally discovered in Mexico City, Mexico. The Aztecs believed that the sun struggled daily against the forces of darkness, so they aided sunlight through human sacrifices to Tonatiuh, the Aztec sun god, featured in the center of the plaque. This Aztec-inspired wall plaque is handcrafted, uno alla volta, from the hearts and hands of the artisan. No two are exactly alike. Each piece is signed by the artisan. Wall plaque measures approx. 12.5in. diameter.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
