STORY

Ixchel (pronounced Ishchel) was the Maya goddess of the moon, of love, of gestation, of medicine, and of the textile arts. She was the wife of the sun god Ak Kin, and was often represented accompanied by a rabbit. The Maya represented her as a young woman, as a symbol of the waxing moon, or else as an older woman, as a symbol of the waning moon, pouring a jug of water onto the earth, or sometimes as an elderly woman weaving on a loom.

This piece of willow tree was found on the deserted and lonely sea shore between the village Sfantu Gheorghe and the town Sulina, in the Danube Delta. It was a summer evening, just before the fierce mosquitoes made their appearance. Everything was still and it seamed like the sea almost forgot to push the land away with its tireless waves.
