Myan Children of the Corn
Myan Children of the Corn   Price: $8.00

The Mayans believed they were created by gods who added their own blood to flour made from corn, a plant native to their Central American homelands. Thus, they were children of the corn. Though their empire is long gone, the Mayans live on. An estimated 1.5 million to 4.5 million descendants of the Mayans inhabit southern Central America. In Mexico's Yucatan region, many residents still speak Maya languages and wear clothing virtually indistinguishable from that depicted in ancient carvings. And, like their ancestors, they pursue a spiritual life. I saw a film about today’s Mayans and their struggles at the Cleveland International Film Festival. This design is dedicated to them.
