Exquisite, intricately handwoven brocade adorns this very special textile. The top and bottom bands represent the stars that light our way through life. Between the stars are pillars that hold up the sky. Design motifs in the center panel represent the four cardinal directions, which are very important in Mayan ceremonial cosmology. Handwoven in rich, earthy shades of beige, red, cocoa and deep brown against black background. Gorgeous.

This special piece is a limited edition, woven on the backstrap loom by weavers from Chirijox. They have left the textile on the loom for you to display.
