Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza handcrafts a replica of the funeral masks used by the ancient Maya. Hieroglyphs tell the story of the fallen personage, usually with numbers to indicate dates, and the red, yellow and orange colors are derived from annatto seeds.

Story Behind the Art:
Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza says, 'I love my country and our handicrafts are a reflection of El Salvador. I'm strongly attracted to the Maya culture and pre-Hispanic ceramics. It would be a shame if this tradition were lost, so we teach artists the ancient techniques. We don't only craft objects that are pretty. They are linked to history and the ancient Maya culture, one of the most important in the history of humanity. Despite the centuries, ours is a culture that is still alive.'

    I ordered several masks to add to my existing collection. I love this. I have masks hung down the stair well and up the stair well. They look cool.
