Description

Translucent Mayan Blue Jade Contemplation Pectoral, Guatemala, ca 600 AD

An exceedingly rare type which may be considered a "contemplation piece".  The main motifs include Maya Lords and Turtles which can me seen in a variety of poses.  In fact, each time the pectoral is turned in hand, the images change.  Turtles are deeply rooted in Maya Cosmology and this Jade may reflect a play on one of their Myths.  2 1/8" length (5.5 cm).
