Museo Casa del Alabado

Clean, modern, abstract design sculpture: the sculptor created a smooth and perfect surface, which allows a subtle play of shadow and light. Another striking feature of this piece is its detachable head which permits the ritual recreation of the sacrifice of human and animal heads.
