MAYAN ART IN STONE
Jewelry and Stone Carvings from Ancient Mexico and Central America.
The Mayan, Aztec, Toltec, Olmec, and other Mesoamerican cultures left behind amazing treasures and art work, carved of jade, obsidian, and other precious stones. Their's was a rich culture, highly connected with nature, the rythyms and cycles of the universe, and their cosmology and this was reflected in their jewelry and sculptures and other forms of art.
Our carvings are reproductions of the original art and jewelry that has been found in archeological sites throughout Mexico and Central America. The pendants make beautiful jewelry. They can be made into necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Our funeral masks are replicas of those found in the tombs of kings and priests. Our king's and queen's necklaces are just like the jewelry worn by the royalty during their ceremonies and special occasions.
We also have miniature Crystal Skulls, like those discovered in Mexico and Central America. Our process for carving the crystal skulls, as well as our crystal quartz products, was developed by Frank Dorland, the original investigator of the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull.
Each piece is a prayer.
Our stone carvings, jewelry, and quartz products are all made by hand, by local artisans. Each item is a unique work of art. They are carved from precious and semi-precious stones, which carry an energy of healing. We preserve as much of the character and nature of the stone as possible, carefully selecting stones that match the carving to be made. We make our necklaces of beads that are carved of stone in the old way, drilling in from both sides, toward the center, for an authentic look and feel.
Each piece is made as a prayer and goes to you as a blessing, from our heart to yours.
