ORIGINAL SAVA DRAGANOV ARTWORK !!!

2023, "Maximon" - wood wall sculpture

This original oak wood wall mask is one of the latest elaborate carving artworks of the talented contemporary Bulgarian professional sculptor Sava Draganov, deeply inspired by postmodernism, cubism and folk art. It is one extraordinary wood masterpiece and exquisite home wall décor.

The ancient Mayans worshipped different gods and goddesses, who were playing an important role in all aspects of life. Maximon is god of travelers, merchants, medicine men/women, mischief and fertility, later conflated with Saint Simon and in modern times part of the celebrations surrounding Holy Week. Maximón is said to represent both light and dark, and to be a trickster. He is both a womanizer and a protector of couples. According to some legends, Maximón was an elder who reincarnated to protect his people. During the Spanish Conquest, an elder named Ri Laj Mam, upset by the evils of the Spaniards, encouraged his people to start a rebellion. He was eventually executed, but returned to life in the form of a judge named Don Ximon, who fought to give land back to the native people of Guatemala. Another legend states that Maximón was hired by traveling fishermen to protect the virtue of their wives. Instead, Maximón disguised himself and slept with all of them. In Santiago Atitlán, an alternative tale says that Maximón was never a man, but a wooden figure created by shamans to defend the village from witches. However, Maximón used trickery to harm the people of the village, so the shamans twisted his head around and broke his legs to stop him. He then did his job properly and protected the people of the town from evil.
