Story Behind the Art:
This intricately detailed replica perfectly recreates the astonishing original piece, carved from basalt stone in 1479 it was dedicated to the sun god. It's a massive carving, 3 feet thick, almost 12 feet across, and weighing almost 25 tons. When the Spaniards arrived in 1519 to start the Conquest it was buried and lost for almost 300 years. In 1790 was unearthed during renovations of the central plaza (Zocalo) in Mexico City. It is now the featured display at the National Anthropology Museum. Not an actual calendar it reflects the Aztec understanding of time, space and celestial observations with of course Tonatiuh the sun god featured in the center.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
