These small Cycles of Life, small, round baskets are beautiful and just the right size for buttons, needles, paperclips or stones. Predicting continuing life cycles, the Mayas saw these as positive baskets showing predictability and continuation of their own lives. Great for young (or old) collectors and a great gift to give when your children are studying the history of the Maya Civilization.
