The Ajitz is a wizard or shaman that can tell the future by throwing magical beans. People will bring offerings to him like food, beverage, cigars or money and he will read the future in his oracle. The red color has a cosmic significance for the Mayan Culture. Blond hair, sideburns, eyebrows and moustaches are nicely carved. Notice the gracefully painted eyebrows that highlight the beautiful brown glass eyes.  Patina denotes use. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
