Story Behind the Art: Long before the Spanish arrived upon the coasts of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Maya preferred to sleep and rest in hammocks. They considered the hammock to be like the loving embrace of a mother, due to the comfortable manner in which the body is held and swung within its cradle. Maya Artists of the Yucatan seek to preserve time-honored customs while also offering stylized versions of the original Maya hammock. For them, the hammock is a work of art.

I was expecting a rope swing. This swing is also a hammock size for me. It had the hooks with it and extension rope. This is a solid product and will bring me many hours of rest and comfort swinging over the river. I searched for 6 months and then finally on sale!
I'm a big girl and was concerned I'd overwhelm this hammock, especially if the strings were too thin. But I sat in it and felt completely secure. The strings are just about right. Any thicker and the hammock might be too heavy to carry. It takes some getting used to getting in and out of a hammock of any kind, but you will get the hang of it. Ideally, there would be a place to raise your feet, but I suppose that's what a hammock-hammock is for, right? If you are having a conversation, or reading a book, it's nice to be a bit more upright. Nothing stops you from putting your feet on a footstool, table--or on the lid of your cooler if you're chillin' at a picnic site. The air circulates all around, which is nice here in the desert. Sit on a towel if you're in shorts, unless you don't mind hammock prints on your thighs.
