Los Castillo design Mexican silver monkey Necklace ~ Ozomahtli

on Jun 5, 2018 in archived

Based on a Los Castillo design the Mexican silver necklace at hand is a fun piece made in the 1950s. It is hallmarked only with Eagle 1 assay mark and since this was also used by the Los Castillo workshop, I will suggest that the necklace’s maker was probably a maestro who worked for them. I will also add that I believe the “mask” links represent Ozomahtli, the companion animal-spirit of Hochipilli, the Aztec god associated with music, dance, poetry and games. Beautifully made, in a design that does not come up very often, it is guaranteed to bring you joy and show you a good time…
