Details

For Mayans, masks were seen as an extension of one's face, a further expression of one's personality and attributes. This hand-carved pinewood wall mask by Jose Canil Ramos of Guatemala expertly depicts a face adorned with a quetzal bird. According to Mayan legend, this bird came to be by gods Kukulkan and Tepeu blowing on the leaves of a guayacán tree.

This was a Christmas gift to a recipient who always gets some form of a reindeer every year, and this was a total hit this year. Beautifully and artistically well made.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Jose suffers from a rare facial nerve paralysis and is currently treating the condition with physical therapy.

Jose is a very talented wood carver. He first learned when he was just ten years old from his father. This art has been passed down for generations and Jose plans to continue the tradition and teach his son how to carve.

Jose Canil Ramos has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $250 and the most recent for $2100. Proceeds were used to invest in wood, saws, paints, and sandpaper for production.

Jose's work helps generate employment opportunities for those in his community. With the sales from NOVICA, he can employ other artisans and help change the lives of his workers.

Jose hires several people in his community which provides them with a stable income for supporting their families.
