Sterling silver stud earrings, 'Maya Chac Mool' (Mexico)

A unique fusion of Maya and Toltec styles, the chac mool depicts a reclining person holding a bowl. The first such figures were discovered in the late 1800s in a number of sites in Yucatán, and it is thought that the bowls received offerings to the gods. Oscar Figueroa Escorcia recreates the enigmatic image in petite sterling silver earrings accentuated with black enamel.
