Maya Blue Homewear
The Maya associated the color blue with their rain deities. When they offered sacrifices to the god Chaak, they would paint them blue in the hope he would send rain to make corn grow. The blue paint has been found on objects for a long time, but scientists have debated how the Maya created the pigment. In Mayan mythology, the colors are used to represent direction. Blue is found in the center of all directions and therefore to be seen as the origin of everything and the beginning of a relationship between manhood and nature. On the other hand the Mayan blue also stands for the cosmos, the heavens and the sky.
