Mexican Ancient Clay Mask

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.
