Vintage Hand Carved Mayan Double Serpent Summer Solstice Chichen Itza Yucatan, Mexico Wooden Mask
purchased by this seller in 1990 during the summer solstice celebration at Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico
intricate double twisted snake design, Mayan royalty figure and jaguars on either side
measures approximately 15" high and 8" wide at the bottom
Good condition. Has been hanging displayed in my home. No damage, cracks, chips or discolorations.
During the apex of the summer solstice, when the sun hits the large pyramid, you can see the shadows of two snakes coming down the sides of the pyramid.
This carved mask is symbolic of that summer solstice event at Chichen Itza.
A great piece for the collector of Mayan cultural pieces and remembrance of the summer solstice.
