'Mayahuel was said to have over 400 breasts, that's why the Mexica gods transformed her into a maguey plant. She is usually portrayed with full breasts and opened legs, as if giving birth,' say artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association as they explain the rich symbolism of this ceramic sculpture. A piece inspired by the Laud Codex (1325-1521), this sculpture portrays Mayahuel as a mother as well as goddess of fertility who fed her children with the fermented juice of the maguey - known as pulque.
