Celebrating Mesoamerica's ancient cultures, artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association create an original mask based on a lifelong study of Mexico's pre-Hispanic cultures. A stylized image of Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent, crowns a skeleton mask. The bony skull emerges from the fangs of a fierce cat. With his light hair and blue eyes, conquistador Hernán Cortés was thought by some Aztec soothsayers to be Quetzalcoatl himself. This facilitated the downfall of the Aztec empire.
