Quetzalcoatl Molded Mask by Namingway Quetzalcoatl Molded Mask by Namingway
This molded mask is of the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl. He's loosely based off of a stone carving of a feathered serpent from Teotihuacan. But, of course, I also tried to mix it with my own style. I even included some Aztec glyphs around his snout. In all, he is roughly 10" wide and 9.5" tall. He is 6.5-7 inches across the eyes for the purposes of fitting. Each mask has an artist's stamp on the back. I cast and paint each one as an order comes in.

This mask is $110 and may be found here- [link]

As a mexican, I know what I'm talking about when I say this is a marvelous job. You did justice to the god of my ancesters: the feathered serpent, bridge between sky and earth.

Thank you! That means a lot. I studied archeology in school, so I tried to be accurate while still having some of my own style in it. I somewhat based this mask off of wall mountings at Chichen Itza.
