The Caveira de Cristal

In 1927, British archaeologist F.A. Michell-Hedges discovered a fascinating part of the Mayan artesanato.

Human being cut in a block of quartz crystal is about a perfect rejoinder of a head.

The way as the Mayans had made this object is considered a mystery.

For this, they had needed some generations of craftsmen with 300 years of devotion to crystal burnishing.

The part superios of the mouth acts as a prism. When the caveira is illuminated underneath, this prism projects the light for top making with that this skirt for the eyes, giving a well vivacious aspect to the sculpture.

The complexity of the drawing, as well as the one of the work in general, gave force to the speculation of that the sculpture would have been made with extraterrestrial technology.
