Wearing only a belt, necklace, and bracelets, this Mayan goddess is realized with striking detail in cedar wood. Nicolas Chavez Sojuel explores Guatemala's Mayan roots, working with local artisans to hand-carve this sculpture. According to Sojuel, this sculpture reflects the story of the God of Maize's resurrection. According to the story, there exist nude goddesses in the Mayan underworld, Xibalbá, who tend to the god and dress him in preparation for his resurrection. One of these goddesses is portrayed in this sculpture.
