This exquisite miniature tree of life was hand crafted in Metepec. A town located in central Mexico, worldwide known for the high quality of it´s pottery.

 It is called tree of life because the most traditional trees, -like this one- depict Adam, Eve, and the creation of life according to the biblical Genesis story.  

 The whole tree of life is surrounded with flowers. You may also see the sun and the moon at the very top of it. The latter are usually present in the tree of life as symbols of  the masculine, the feminine and the dual nature of existence. An important reminiscence of the rich pre hispanic culture; where all the pottery tradition begun. 

Making each tree of life takes many days of dedication from picking up and sifting the clay, molding the piece to placing it in the oven and finally arriving to the utmost delicate process of painting. 

Mastering this craft is a process that takes years and is transmitted from one generation to the next. Usually the artists learn the technique at a very young age while playing with clay in their family workshops.
