Stupendous Mexican Deco silver belt buckle in the shape of mirrored Quetzalcoatls executed in perfect repoussage and having acquired a glorious patina over the years. The anonymous maestro used silver sheet of good thickness here and the piece feels as substantial as it looks.

Wearable art and quite impressive too…
