Kayum Ma'ax Garcia is a Lacandon Maya artist of the monkey onen, or clan. He lives in the tiny rainforest village of Naha deep in the Lacandon Biosphere of Chiapas, Southern Mexico. He works in acrylics on canvas. In his artwork Kayum conveys actual events, lifeways, creation stories and rituals of a culture nearly gone - as well as his dreams, an important aspect of traditional life. Proceeds of any art sales go directly to Kayum who has little exposure to the world outside his village.
