The legendary chac mool sculpture, found in front of the Templo Mayor in Mexico City, is masterfully replicated by Mexican artisan Angel Cerón. Sculpted by hand, the ceramic piece depicts a man with elaborate headdress and ornamentation holding a bowl over his belly. It is believed to be designed to hold ritual offerings, perhaps human hearts. The name, chac mool, means 'red jaguar' and was intended to refer to those sculptures found in the Yucatan peninsula, but now it refers to similar sculptures from different pre-Hispanic communities, including Toltec. It serves as evidence of the relationship between all these ancient cultures before the Spanish conquest.
