Story Behind the Art:
About 30 indigenous Guatemalan women from Santiago Atitlan create the 3-D star ornament. Santiago is a magical place, located on the shores of beautiful Lake Atitlan, and is filled with the legend of the Xocomil, a shiny crystal palace in the depths of the lake. The beaded Christmas ornaments are a great source of work for Maya artisans because women can work from home allowing them to care for children and elderly members. The Maya of Santiago speak one of the 21 indigenous languages spoken in Guatemala today, Tzutujil.
