Details

Written by Carmen L. Pettersen, this book is presented by the Association of Friends of the Ixchel Museum. This hard cover book is a celebration of Mayan women in Guatemala, as each page features original watercolors and cultural descriptions of today's Mayan descendants, the Quiche people, who endure despite centuries of foreign domination. This text is written in English and Spanish.

The museum's name honors the pre-Hispanic goddess who was the patroness of weaving and fertility. The private, non-profit Ixchel Museum of Indigenous Textiles and Clothing was founded in 1977. Its mission is to collect, document, rescue, and exhibit the heritage of indigenous textiles in Guatemala, teaching it to people in order to conserve and spread it.
