For sale here is a HUGE vintage 1950s 60s handmade mixed metals 'metales casados' azurmalachite stone inlay and onyx Mexican modernist Aztec Warrior Chieftain wall plaque/sculpture by Los Castillo of Taxco. An extravagant example of a large scale dimensional modernist take on a pre-Columbian Aztec warrior chieftain with a lavishly feathered helmet and with a shell design with stone inlay decoration. The entire figure is in mixed metals with an onyx and married metals dimensional earring that drops a full 3"! The 'feathers' are brass with inlaid azurmalachite stone. The outer edges of the artwork measure 17" by 12-5/8" by about 3/4" thick, and the figure itself measures 11" by 8" and rises above the wood base by a full 1". Marked at the bottom right at front as shown with "Los Castillo" in raised brass lettering that is applied to the wood. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and some tarnish in spots as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
