Although many can‘t even mention or see him, Lucifer is a common religious figure seen across the Guatemalan mainland. People do not ask to him to perform actions, but to have him pleased so he will not act against one. Prayers and offerings are made so one will be left alone and not “tempted” by carnal acts, acted against or pursued by the negative forces of the lower spiritual world. Notice the horns, teeth, big ears, wings, moustache, beard, tale and feet characteristic of demons; a chicken’s leg and a hoof. The image rests in a wooden stand. Metal wings and ears give the piece a special look. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
