Centuries ago, some citizen of the Mayan Empire wore this elegant little talisman to win benevolent protection of the God depicted on it. Blending the beauties of nature with the quick, painterly strokes of the artist, the amulet glows with pearly iridescence that seems magical. In the fashion of Mayan deities, the God wears an elaborate feathered headdress that emphasizes his importance. As we hold it in our hands today, we cannot help but wonder who first wore it long ago, and if their dreams were answered. - (PF.2055)
