The Chililico community produces many types of ceramics from utilitarian vessels for daily use to ceremonial items. These folk art pieces are two vintage Chililico animal candleholders which were handmade by the Nahua Peoples in the 1950's and painted with natural pigments. They are made of terracotta and accented with lively white markings giving the pieces personality. The pair would complement a variety of interiors with a neutral beige, brown or white palette. They are immaculate and a perfect for a folk art collector.
