A beautiful filigree carving by the Lacandon Indians from Mexico. The pendant is flat on the underside so that it can fit snugly against the body. The structures are very finely worked out and testify to great craftsmanship.

About the Lacandon Indians:

The Lacandon Indians are a Mayan people who live in a jungle area, the "Selva Lacandona", in eastern Chiapas / Mexico. The Lacandon have been able to maintain their centuries-old traditional way of life since they came into contact with civilization very late (in the 20th century). The ancestors of the Lacandon once fled from the Spaniards from Yucatan to the jungle regions of Chiapas, where they lived relatively isolated until modern times. Their language is therefore most closely related to the Mayathan, the Mayan language of Yucatán.

The Lacandon were never defeated by the Spanish conquistadors, which allowed them to preserve their culture and ancient religion. The city of Yaxchilán is a historic Mayan city on the Usumacinta River in Chiapas. The Lacandon Indians still visit it for ritual purposes. The city is known for the large number of sculptures found there. Men, women and children smoke long cigars at their ceremonies.

The traditional clothing of the Lacandon are straight-cut white linen dresses. The Lacandon live from agriculture and the sale of handicrafts. They are known for their delicate work.
