She Is Everything: Maya Women in the Art of Pedro Rafaél González Chavajay

Now you can purchase our new short documentary, featuring interviews with the eminent Tz'utuhil Maya artist Pedro Rafaél González Chavajay and insightful commentators. The artist explains, "The deeper I got into the Maya traditions, the more I began to appreciate women." His works reveal Maya women as priests, as mothers and midwives, and as survivors of the 36-year internal conflict in Guatemala. Above all, the Maya women in his paintings represent hope for a world in peril.
