Mayan Pottery

Mayan Pottery

According to our guide, this pottery was broken not by vandals but by the Mayan’s themselves. After a ritual, the vessels were broken to release the human spirit.

I have read a related story about Navajo rug weavers. It seems they leave a loose thread in a rug, a flaw so the weaver’s spirit has a way to escape and is not forever caught up in the rug.
