Mexican tree of life in hand-painted terracotta
Height 13 cm and 10 about wide (The trees are slightly different). A tree of Mexican life is a sculpture in clay or terracotta hand crafted often by craftsmen in The center of Mexico, mainly in the municipality of Metepec, Estado de Mexico, not far from Toluca.

The Mexican Tree of life is part of the tradition of pottery and ceramics of the central plateau of Mexico. The representation of a "tree of life" in paintings and other media are introduced as a means of evangelizing the native population, Aztecs and Mayas. Then the Mexican people adopted this culture and began making terracotta life trees, with brilliant colors and images of human, flowers, birds, butterflies, snake and fruit, as well as sun and moon, Which symbolizes paradise. They bring good luck to their owner.

The images depicted on the sculptures of the tree of life were originally used during the first Mexican colonial period, to teach the history of creation, according to the Bible, to the natives of the region.
