This necklace is from Pablo Castellano's "Cargadores del tiempo" collection. Meaning "Time Carriers," the term refers to the Maya belief in the four pillars of energy that sustain time and represent the cardinal points. Depicted on the corners of the calendar, the Iq, can be either the hawk or hummingbird nahual of Maya origin. Pablo Castellano replicates the legendary glyph in sterling silver centered by a window for this nahual symbolizes the birth of air and thus of life. Rich in powerful artistry, the handcrafted pendant is worn on a cotton cord.

I thought it would be solid sterling silver and heavier. But it is light-weight and beautiful. Had to do some research on nuhauls and what a fascinating history. Would definitely order again. I will probably wear it with a sterling silver chain but that is just my personal style.
