The ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza is a Mexican archaeological site brimming with ancient ruins, temples and pyramids. It was the ceremonial center for the Maya civilization.
Our card honors Chichen Itza and the Mayan gods said to have lived there 1500 years ago.
Itzamná is depicted as a large-nosed, toothless old man. But appearances can be deceptive. Itzamna is the god of fire and the son of the creator god. According to the Maya, he created the earth and rules heaven day and night.
His wife Ix Chel is one of the most important goddesses in the vast Maya Pantheon. She was the Lady of the Moon, the goddess of fertility, harvests, sexuality, and pregnancy, so women entrusted her with the protection of their children.
This is a unique card for lovers of ancient history, Mexico, the Mayans, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, the Yucatan, for birthdays and anniversaries, for travelers, archeologists, architects.
There is a pull out note featuring the Mayan calendar on one side and a space to write a message on the other side.
