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.
K'IN means Sun, Flower, Yellow in the Maya script. This pair of stem earrings are crafted with a drop of black obsidian on green stone, 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.
