This Teotihuacan mask is entirely carved on a gorgeous mahogany obsidian. It could find its way easily into an art gallery or could be a remarkable gift.
The Teotihuacan mask is one of the most representative elements of this culture. Like deities, whose faces nobody could see; because they were wearing masks, the great lords buried in Teotihuacan also wore one, to appear at the underworld. The masks were the link between deceased and divinity, the means through which they communicated.
Teotihuacan masks are exceptionally beautiful, they feature an idealized young face type, without any attempt to individualize it: oval shaped eyes, lengthened eyebrows, slightly wide straight nose, half open mouth and rectangular ears.
