I am so impressed with the order that I received. It came very quickly. I really appreciated the handwritten notes on my packing slip as well as the little gift taped to it. There was such a warmth to it that I have not experienced with other companies. Thank you for making me feel special with that little touch. Blessed Be to All!

Ixchel: the Weaver/Creatrix

Ixchel is the world-weaver, Mayan Goddess of childbirth and healing. In this statue she sits entranced, accompanied by her companion the nest-weaver bird, dreaming out the warp and weft of the Great Fabric of Life upon her backstrap loom. She was worshipped throughout the Mayan Yucatan as the Life-Giving Queen.

The rite of passage into womanhood required fashioning such a clay statue of Ixchel, traveling to the sacred Isle of Women (Isla Mujeres) and performing a ritualistic breaking of the image in her temple there. Ixchel can be compared to Spider Woman, the Creatrix worshiped widely by North American native peoples.

Plaque measures approximately 5 inches x 6 inches. Made of resin with a silver/pink color finish.

Art History: Museo Nacional, Mexico City, 8th cent.
