Mayan Warrior in Clay
Reference : MAYAGUERRI
This maya warrior is made in clay and measures 23 cm (9.5'')
It represents succes in war on everyday combats.
Warfare was a ritual process. Before going into battle, the armies would call upon the gods with dances and music of drums, whistles, conch shell horns and singing. Mayan armies also carried religious idols like this one into battle to inspire the warriors. They fought fiercely because they believed that death on the battle field secured them eternal bliss, whereas capture by the enemy was regarded as worse than any deat. When an enemy was defeated, the victorious army exploited the religious icons and sometimes humiliated the defeated leader with prolonged captivity. The treatment of prisoners by the victorious was brutal and often ending in decapitation. This maya warrior shows his enemy's head in his right hand as a symbol of his triumph.
