This item was created

A cat headdress pays tribute to Chaak Balam, the 'Grand Jaguar' of the ancient Maya pantheon and a symbol of power. By Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza, this dramatic mask depicts an ancient Maya of noble standing, perhaps a priest or king. Modern artisans utilize the same materials and techniques as in pre-Hispanic times, achieving the red, yellow and orange colors from annatto seeds.
