Red Heart Mud Earrings
- Made by Toltec teacher Marco Vargas Toltecayotl in Mexico City.
- The color is achieved with an ancestral technique that mixes iron oxides from the Paricutin volcano with cobalt oxide.
- This piece shows the clear syncretism of the pre-Hispanic culture with the viceregal culture. It is the sacred heart, which could be found in the Templo Mayor in the last Virreinal overlays.
