Handcrafted Mexican Carved Wooden Snake

$ 115

Brit has combined her love of traveling and finding beautifully made goods by bringing back a few amazing hand-carved wooden home decor items from Mexico. This incredible piece features a coiled snake with contrast carved scales, tales, and large sharp fangs with a Mayan figure inside the mouth. Looks so amazing practically anywhere in a home- our favorite is on a fireplace mantel, wall mounted shelf, or bedside table. A true work of art made by artisans in the Tulum area of Mexico and brought back in a suitcase by Brit just for you!

"Maya mythology describes serpents as being the vehicles by which celestial bodies, such as the sun and stars, cross the heavens. The shedding of their skin made them a symbol of rebirth and renewal. They were so revered, that one of the main Mesoamerican deities, Quetzalcoatl, was represented as a feathered serpent."
