The paintings depict daily life, landscapes, nature and birds, food, traditional ceremonies and cosmology and contemporary expressions that represent their Mayan way of life and culture. The artists are known for their distinctive style and their works have been exhibited in places such as the Smithsonian and galleries and shows internationally. The crafts include weaving and bead work for which the artisans are also famous and often incorporate designs and figures that are based on centuries old traditions. Both the art and the crafts are important ways the artists and artisans maintain and share their culture.
