Roll over image to zoom in

Six colorful masks from Guatemala's "Dance of the Conquest" come to life in ceramic. Adapted from Spanish history, in which the Spaniards expelled the Moors from their homeland, the dance portrays the struggle between the Spaniards and the Maya. A man with golden hair and beard is the conquistador. The red devil has golden horns and a skeleton represents death. Animals of the jungle include a red jaguar, black and white monkey and a colorful toucan, completing the set of six original ornaments by Jose Arriola. They arrive in a pouch of handloomed cotton.

Artisan: Jose Arriola

Artisan Jose Arriola 'My favorite thing to do is to create new designs and I love the challenge of crafting and painting them by hand,' says Guatemala's Jose Arriola. 'Each design is proof of the richness of our culture. Working with ceramics has brought me many beautiful things, from learning the craft from my mother and uncles, to providing for my family so that my four children can go to the university. I already have a grandchild and my wish for all of them is that they become independent people with a career of their choice. That they be responsible and be respectful of God.'
