Maya art is a rare and complex combination of linear elegance and naturalism, blended with a densely-coded, language-based symbolism. Decorated objects, ranging from painted vases and carved ornaments to towering stone monuments and building facades, bear the traces of a symbol system that, while fascinating, can make an understanding of these images elusive to the uninitiated.

The power of language is immense as the duration of its foundations through the perspective of time. This Mayan Estelas bring us the detail of a language which is still a mystery. The communication which touches the eyes before the mouth expresses a singular thought or emotion. The perseverance of the rich Mayan culture captures its own representation of the magical cosmovision through an image of fine and delicate relief on our fine Mexican ceramic mix.
