Mexican Folk Art Black Clay Skull

$ 26.99

This Mexican Folk Art Black Clay Skull is a stunning addition to your home décor. The skull has an open bottom so they can be used as a luminaria. Just set the skull over a tea or votive candle. Its smooth surface, hand carving and fine details make this black clay skull a treasure to display. There is a long history of barro negro (black mud) pottery from the Oaxaca region of Mexico, but it is only since the 1950s that Dona Rosa discovered the technique to create the well-known metallic black sheen of the pottery.

These visually striking pieces are all painstakingly hand crafted and fired in thick black smoke to create their unique look and can take more than twenty days to complete.

  • Hand Painted Clay
  • 2.5" W x 3.75" D x 3" H
  • Due to being handmade, each skull varies slightly
