Overview

Guatemala is home to more than 20 distinct Maya ethnic groups, including the Tz‘utujil, who live in the highlands. In the early 20th century, Tz‘utujil artists began painting bird’s-eye views of markets and festivals in a brightly colored folk art style. The glass beads in these earrings are typical colors in Tz‘utujil painting and in women’s embroidered traditional dress.
