Mayan Cup Jicara Shell Set
$119.00|4 pieces|Made in Mexico
This set includes 4 Jicaras cups with 4 wooden cup holders. “El vaso Maya” represents the union of heaven and earth, which in Mayan cosmology is embodied in the rain deity, Chaak. Chaak filled a jícara with water and thus fertilized the earth, allowing life to spring forth. The religious centrality of the jícara is carried into the Mayan kitchen, where it is used as a versatile for many different ingredients. The natural resilience of the wood allows jícaras to hold any number of substances, and their cultivation, harvesting, and crafting was a central element of Mayan economy. Whilst their use has receded due to the spread of modern materials, Region is working to once again popularize this wonderful product.
