Even before the arrival of Christianity in the Yucatan, the Maya revered the symbol of the cross as their Tree of Life. As the two cultures converged in the 1500s, the Maya retained traditions from their own understanding of the cosmos. Yet, they embraced the cross as a medium through which a person could awaken their spirit, invoke blessings and receive divine inspiration. It has been centuries, but remarkably, almost miraculously, the Maya continue to dwell in the Yucatan and Guatemala.
The sculptural, polychrome facades of their ancient buildings and their color-drenched weaving continue to infuse daily life with a sense of the spiritual. My cross design is born of that world. Colors of the earth are expressed in stunning metalwork and enamel. Many artists have put their hands to the creation of your cuff. May it bring you joy and inspiration. Burnished bronze metal finish.
