Jade pendant necklace, 'Ajpu Medallion' (Guatemala)

Representing the image of a warror, the Mayan glyph for the human being, Ajpu, is etched by hand into a medallion of dark green Guatemalan jade. Zandra Lorena Sajbin designs this stunning pendant necklace, inspired by the beauty of jade and the significance of pre-Hispanic glyphs. The pendant centers a length of adjustable cotton cord, and features the Nahual name "Ajpu" inscribed on the reverse side.
