By Salvador Petzey, this unique box depicts an ancient Maya glyph in mahogany. The Aj glyph represents new generations, according to the Maya. Two loops at the top depict tender plant shoots, and the vertical lines symbolize sugar cane and trees. The horizontal lines in the center represent the multiplication of furrows as well as the horizon. Its animal nahual connecting humans with deities is the armadillo. The pale cypress wood glyph opens to reveal a hidden drawer, and the sculpture stands on a base of granadillo wood.

I received this beautiful sculpture puzzle box for my birthday from my daughter and her boyfriend. I love this sculpture so much I bought them one as an engagement present. The perfect gift for two people in love and admirers of penguins. I know it will mean a lot to them. You create such beautiful sculptures, Salvador Petzey.


Yesterday I received Salvador's beautiful Ceiba Tree, which is even more beautiful in person. I love the lines of the tree and the contrasting colors of wood. It is expertly carved, clearly with great love. Thank you, Salvador, for creating such a beautiful work of art. I'm honored to have it in my home. Gracias!
