Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association replicate the unique artistry of the Maya culture with this detailed mask. Similar to a totemic image, the mask features the profile of Chaac, God of Rain, while the iguana represents Itzamná, God of the Sky, Lord of Fire, and Love. Itzmana's name has many meanings, one of which is 'house of the four iguanas,' in reference to the four directions of the wind: north, south, east, and west. To the Maya people, Itzmaná reigned over life and death. To finish this piece, the artisans include a brave warrior with an ornate headdress.
