Quick Overview:

The energy of the day known as Ajpu is ideal for reconnecting with our inner hero, says Iliana Hernandez alluding to the beliefs that underlie the Maya calendar. Each day is represented by a specific glyph, which Hern?ndez hand-paints on a palo blanco wood pendant hanging from a beige faux-suede cord. Resembling a person blowing a festive serpentine, this glyph symbolizes the life force. The creature associated with Ajpu is the human being. .925 Sterling silver clasp
