Ceramics from yesteryear
The Virgen de Guadalupe, milagros, sacred hearts and images are all artistic motifs used in Mexican folk art in every state in Mexico.
The Christmas decorations of Mexico vary by region but are always colorful and festive whether made of tin, paper, wood, textiles or clay.
"Milagro"means "miracle" in Spanish. Milagros are religious charms that are prevalent throughout Mexico and are used to request or thank God for a miracle.

This is a life size (to fit over a small human head; not the size of real tiger head!) leather tigre or jaguar mask used in the famous, Dance of the Tigres, in Guerrero, Mexico. This mask stands on its own and features the yellow leather with black tiger stripes, real boar bristles for whiskers and faded red lips, red tongue and ears. The eyes in this one are not mirrors, but look like tin. A conversation starter!
This amazing piece was purchased in the 1990's by a local Mexican folk art collector.
Comes with the wooden stand. Shipping will be $19.99. state of origin: Guerrero dimensions: approx 14" tall by 12" wide; stand is 21" tall
