Mopan is a ceramic piece burned at high temperature, inspired by rituals of the pre-Hispanic cultures of Mexico. It is part of the "Nahual" collection of Mecate Studio. The ceramics burned at high temperature arise from the worldview held by the pre-Hispanic cultures of Mexico. The Mopán (deer) and the Híkuri (ashtray) are abstracted from the Wixárica religion of the Huichol culture and are reminiscent of the blue deer: "In this living and magical desert, end of the world, the Blue Deer will reveal itself to us to find our life, he will teach us, he will be our medicine" in the celebration of the sacred ceremony of the Híkuri.
