This clay bead has been hand formed by me, air-dried for several days, carved with the Tzolk'in Mayan Glyph for MANIK' then fired for several hours, glazed and once again.
Threaded onto a strong adjustable 2mm thick black braided cord. The pendant measures 1-5/8" x 1-1/4" x 3/16" thick ( 40mm x 31mm x 5mm).
**Only one model has been made, unique creation, what you see in the photo is what you will receive. Colour will vary from PC monitor to smartphone screen.**
MANIK' (pronounced man-EEK)
Deer represented all things sacred, and the Maya valued white-tailed deer most of all. It is possible that small herds of deer were owned as status symbols by the Maya elite.
Characteristics: Individualistic, outspoken, creative, sensual, artistic and even eccentric.
