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 echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
