This Clay mask is from Teotihuacana, Mexico.
It depicts “Dios Viejo del Fuego”, Which was one of the oldest deity worshipped in the Basin of Mexico, known as Huehueteotl by his Náhuatl name.
200 BC – 800 A.D.
When I saw this face I just wanted to paint him. I love the animals in here and his expressions and also I chose a vibrant gold color because I felt he was rich and glowing.
Here he is on fine art america.
