A young woman attending a ceremony to ensure a good harvest of maize, which requires sacrificial blood, ground with maize kernels atop a metate. Her jewelry is made of gilded tumbaga, jadeite and red shell. The patterns of the body painting were created by using roller stamps. The scene takes place atop the mounds of a site such as Guayabo de Turrialba in the Central Highlands of Costa Rica. Reconstruction is based on the archaeological evidence, in large part on clay figurines and metal objects found in graves.

Thank you so much, Ubuntico, whose logo a jadeite pectoral from Costa Rica is.

Yes, I am a jade carver, too much of my carvings are inspired in the precolumbian jade carving legacy of my country.
