Details

Ah Kin is a venerable elder with the body of a youth. Deftly carving cedar wood, Nicolas Chavez Sojuel faithfully portrays the deity as depicted in ancient codices. A woven belt is tied to his head, and he holds the glyph for the sun in his right hand. A necklace of pinewood beads forms an impressive pectoral in this wonderfully detailed sculpture.

"It is an honor for me to represent such an important figure for the Maya," the Guatemalan artisan confides. "I carved it with my own hands and it took many days to finish it. I hope you like it."

The headdress, hair and nose ornaments, necklace pendant and hands are detached for shipping.
