Wagging its tail, this plump little dog replicates those found in shaft tombs throughout western Mexico. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association depict the itzcuintli, a cheerful, barkless species prized by ancient man. Sculpted in clay as funerary offerings, they accompanied their masters in death to aid the soul in crossing rivers of blood along the road of the dead. This is a replica of an archaeological piece from Comala, Colima.
