Claudia and Julio create a dramatic relief panel to add a touch of history and culture to your home. The panel is crafted of copper repoussé over wood. Surrounded by hieroglyphs, an ancient Maya ball player demonstrates his skill and strength. The ball game represented the movements of the heavens for many pre-Hispanic peoples and, for the Maya, the game had a religious significance. This is a replica of an archaeological piece from Chinkultic in southern Mexico. Once thought to be a calendar, as the glyphs represent dates, it is one of the first ball court markers discovered.
