Modern Mayan Sculpture

For some reason there is a myth that some people believe that Mayans disappeared leaving this great culture they created. Like any indigenous people this is not true and they are still where they have always been.

Sure they have intermarried with other indigenous people and with their Spanish conquerers. However, like northern Native Americans they still live and they have not been cruelly displaced by the Mexican government. They live in the shadows of the temples and edifices they created a thousand years ago,

Like their ancestors, modern Mayans are also artists. This is an example of modern Mayan sculpture you can find at the Mayan Musuem in Cancún.
