ම Rodrigo Salcedo and Muan wanted to represent one of the 5 Solid Platonics related to wind and also the 5 Mayan elements, using the god of wind Zac-Cimi. Forged with the most highest technology and craftsmanship available today, this necklace is art in form of jewelry.
According to the Mayan Culture, the Bacab are the 4 gods that sustain the world, descendants of ITZAMANÁ the 5th supreme deity. The Bacabs stand in the cardinal points supporting the World. Their names were Hobnil (South/Water), Cantzicnal (East/Fire), Zac-Cimi (North/Air) and Hosan-ek (West/Earth).
The 5 Solid Platonics are the geometries that sustain the whole physical universe and are also related to the 5 elements, the relationship between these two almost similar ways of viewing the universe are too similar to call a coincidence. Ancient sacred knowledge now manifested into this unique piece.
Muan is an ode to ancient Mexican cultures, specifically the Mayans. After more than a decade of research into their culture an idea arose to create a brand that would communicate their cosmovision to the modern world. All their pieces have a part of history in them to learn and grasp their vast understanding of the universe. ම
