Description

This is a unusual and very Mid Century design artisan crafted in Mexico. It was created sometime in the 1960s it depicts Aztec god Quetzalcoatl. Though not marked, it is probably by Casa Maya of Mexico City.

The design of this necklace has a magnificent primitively quality but retains the modernist edge. The central plaque is a modernist interpretation of the Aztec God Quetzalcoatl. The artisan uses wire elements to suggest feathers, eyes, nose and tongue. In Mexico mixed metal works (copper/brass) were polychromed (please refer to the photos). It is composed of copper and has not been cleaned. That I leave to the collector. This is an exceptional Mid Century design.

The Pendant measures 3.35" long including the drops and 2.60" wide. The substantial chain measures 10.49" on each side. The piece is artisan crafted and has a working hook closure.

About Quetzalcoatl:
Quetzalcoatl was feathered serpent deity and was considered the God of the Winds by the Aztec people whose empire occupied Mexico.

Please review the photos carefully and email with any questions you may have prior to making a purchase.
