Story: Mictēcacihuātl (Nahuatl, meaning "Lady of the Dead"), in Aztec mythology, is a death deity and consort of Mictlāntēcutli, god of the dead and ruler of Mictlān, the lowest level of the underworld.

Her role is to watch over the bones of the dead and preside over the ancient festivals of the dead. These festivals evolved from Aztec traditions into the modern Day of the Dead after synthesis with Spanish traditions. She now presides over the contemporary festival as well. She is known as the "Lady of the Dead", since it is believed that she was born, then sacrificed as an infant. Mictēcacihuātl was represented with a flayed body and with jaw agape to swallow the stars during the day

RETURNS: NO RETURNS unless your item is significantly different from the description as if the wrong item was sent.
CONDITION: Most items are one-of-a-kind, some items are vintage (very old), and some are handmade, some imported all the way from Mexico. Due to this nature, they are not perfect, not all the same, and may have slight variations. If we notice an item has been repaired or is damaged, we will note this in the listing.
SHIPPING: Once we drop off the packages to the delivery service, it is completely out of our hands and control, therefore, we are NOT responsible for items damaged during shipping, lost in the mail, delivered to the wrong address, or stolen from your premises. You can file a claim with the responsible shipping company. We usually add insurance to high value items and items that are fragile. Keep in mind that most damage is easily repairable! Lastly, note that the USPS tends to scan the packages as delivered a day before they actually get delivered while they are still at the facility. Please be patient.
