Bertha Cruz: Maiz Deity Cat

Wonderful Centeotl Maize Deity cat by well known artist Bertha Cruz. This fantastic cat is conceptually so well rounded. The central theme is Maiz which was an essential, vital force element of all Mesoamerican Cultures. The main golden brown and yellow coloring of the figure represent the colors of corn. The codex symbols are ancient representations of corn plant, corn cobs and the Mexica god of Corn Centeotl. A rich, beautiful piece!
