Mayan textiles are an important source of information about Mayan culture. There are countless symbols used in woven textiles representing the world we all live in. Some Elements are even hold sacred as they represent a spiritual significance.
THE COSMIC SERPENT
Widely spread in Mayan textile art zigzag patterns represent a Serpent (or Snake). As serpents travel through waves they are seen as symbol for energy. Everything in the Universe, from the pillowcase on your couch to yourself as a living being is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. With this in mind, everything we focus our attention and thoughts upon is what creates our unique vibration. Life is much more enjoyable when our vibration is high, we are living in the positive flow and are inviting inspiring experiences into our lives.
The Ixcot or two-headed eagle is considered the nawal or animal spirit of several villages in the highlands of Guatemala. It is viewed as a bringer of good luck and represents spiritual power and courage. The bird is facing both - the future and the past - and therefore represents the duality and interconnectivity of all things: good and bad, the sun and the moon, day and night, women and men, taking and giving.
THE QUETZAL BIRD
The quetzal bird is one of the most important symbols in traditional Mayan clothing. Sacred to the ancient Maya the enigmatic and elusive bird was referred to as the ‘God of the Air’. The Maya viewed the quetzal as a symbol of freedom and wealth due to the value of the feathers and the fact that the Quetzal does not survive in captivity. It would rather die than be held prisoner.
