5 Pictoglyphs Skyband Bracelet
Artist Frida Larios created The New Maya Language, system of symbols, in which she, “celebrates and preserves the dead written language.” Like a graphic anthropologist, Larios has dug into the roots and complex structure of the Maya writing system and formulated a new one intended to honor it and bring it into contemporary life and culture.
Her 5 Pictoglyphs Skyband bracelet is crafted in white jade and marble with incrusted obsidian and set on recycled silver. It is co-created in collaboration and conscious partnership with master artisans: Don Mundo in Copán Ruins, Honduras, who carves and hand-mines the stones, and Don Samuel in San Salvador, El Salvador, who custom sets each stone on recycled silver. The crafting process of this statement bracelet takes four full weeks.
Dimensions: 8” X 1 5/8”
