Within the Maya Tzolk’in (Sacred Count of Days) the daysign known as Manik’ (pronounced Maneek) is associated with both reciprocity and power. Translated as “Deer” by many Mesoamerican groups, Manik’ is symbolic of the energy of Sacred Balance that is essential to harmonious life. It represents the kind of “sacred cooperation” required between deer and hunter in the provision of sustenance. The “sun-in-hand” symbol reflects the blessings of the sun, representing the energy of personal engagement that is so necessary for accomplishment.
Our jewelry items that are representative of Manik’ include one-of-a-kind porcelain pendants, some strung on cord, some beaded, some silver-backed, and some multi-fired with lustres. “Monumental” style items are those with the little “feet”. “Codex” style items are those without the “feet”. Sterling silver pendants are also available, along with personalized pieces. Click here for a Date Decoder to find the Maya Calendar equivalent to your date of birth.
