The Aztec Calendar Skull is a many dimensional piece, with its fine detail to the elaborate Aztec carving. Features are mainly of the extremely recognizable Aztec calendar that was carved in stone in 1479. The Aztecs, and other Pre-Columbian people of central Mexico used this calendar system. The original calendar was lost for over 300 years until it was unearthed in Mexico City in 1790, during renovations. This skull can be a great addition to your Mexican home décor. This cold cast resin skull has carved details much like the ancient calendar itself. It is hand-painted in realistic human skull detail.
