This stunning piece features our favorite Mayan subject. A Warrior in battle - It is a place of fearlessness, it represents an eternal cycle,purpose and peace knowing the warrior was part of the cycle. More than a symbol of death, it is a symbol of synergy. Balanced equal designs on either side, (rare) Profile of warrior is profile featured in Ancient architecture. It is a profile of determination reflective of Maya features; high cheekbones, what we call an eagle nose and almond eyes.
