Details

By Salvador Petzey, this unique box depicts an ancient Maya glyph in mahogany. The Aj glyph represents new generations, according to the Maya. Two loops at the top depict tender plant shoots, and the vertical lines symbolize sugar cane and trees. The horizontal lines in the center represent the multiplication of furrows as well as the horizon. Its animal nahual connecting humans with deities is the armadillo. The pale cypress wood glyph opens to reveal a hidden drawer, and the sculpture stands on a base of granadillo wood.

This was a gift to my in-laws for their 50th anniversary. They happen to love penguins. I love supporting artisans and this is even more beautiful in person. Also, it was beautifully gift wrapped.
