Deity Dolls: Tezcatlipoca by Illishar Deity Dolls: Tezcatlipoca by Illishar
Tezcatlipoca is the Aztec God of Sorcery, Darkness, and Travelers. I should have painted his whole body but just did the face, and at some point I should probably replace his left foot with a mirror like in some of the myths. Anyway, he's one of my favorite gods and one of my favorite dolls. I love the feathered headdress but it fragile and is a pain to store correctly without damaging it.

I did not make the doll, just the costume.

This is one of seventeen dolls I've made in what I call the "Deity Line" - a group of dolls based on Gods and Goddesses from cultures and mythologies around the world. I've worked on them for the last eighteen years and will probably make some more in years to come.

Actually this exact doll was up for sale on ebay for $40 this summer but no one bought him - so if you want to buy him you sure can. However he was packed into storage along with the other ones that didn't sell and he is now nice and neatly and safely packed away in a place I can't reach until April. So if you don't mind waiting that long...sure! And he's one of a kind, btw, they all are. I never made duplicates of my work.

Thanks so much for asking! I'm psyched you like my work!!
