Mayan figures have always been made of clay, which the Mayans collect at the river banks or at the edge of the cenotes, and is tempered with sand, ashes and tiny stones.

The orange color, which was obtained from the mexican State of Tabasco, became part of the Mayan color range, and by adding other minerals the Mayas created the famous Mayan blue, a turquoise shade, which through Mayan trade was exported to Central Mexico and to all Mesoamerican areas.

Many of these extraordinary ceramic objects, which are the most exquisite expression of Mayan art, are exhibited in numerous museums in Mexico, where you can admire the high artistic skills of the Mayan artists.
