I've made a couple of purchases here. The service is top notch. Fast shipping and delivery. I had an online business for 7 years and unfortunately it's rare to find one that does it right by the customer. 13 Moons is a credit to the e-commerce industry. They've earned regular customers in both me and my daughter. Thanks 13 Moons!

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.
