"Why did you choose this product?"
I had a calendar like this in the past and was disheartened when it broke. Decided to replace it and googled only to come across this excellent piece. I know it came in more than one size, but this size is perfect as a wall hanging or a display piece (either flat or as a plate display). The detailing is very sharp. The color is more of a clay tan (which I like) rather than the golden tan in the picture (which I also would have liked) with darker highlights in the carvings....

Story Behind the Art:
Angel Ceron comes from a family with generations of artisan experience. He learned the family ceramic techniques from his father, Antonio Ceron Orta, a renowned artisan. Angel began a long study of Mexico's pre-Hispanic cultures and learned the Nahuatl language spoken in ancient Mesoamerica. Ceron uses clay from northern Oaxaca state, the only clay of this kind in Mexico and perhaps in the world. The unique characteristics of this yellow clay make it ideal for molding. It dries evenly and is especially hard, thus it is resistant to impact and can withstand very high temperatures.
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.

I have been looking for an Azrec calendar for years at flea markets, with no luck. I stumbled across this one on Overstock.com and sent it to my son as a gift. It did take awhile for him to receive it, but it arrived before Christmas, so that was all that mattered.Read More
Questions & Answers
We recently redid our spare bathroom and put stone flooring in and painted the walks tan and dark brown. Was originally wanting to do a Mexican theme and after looking I am leaning to an aztec theme.... I love different cultures and this piece will definitely be a conversation piece!
