Gabriela Varela in her costume at Reina Hispanoamericana
The Mayan Empire dominated our land and all central America during its classico period. Its culture vibrates even through its piramades and history. A culture where your gods were of importance during your everyday life.
Tonight we show the most important God in the Mayan world - kinich ahau (God of the sun). Its value and importance reflects in the fact of life in power and strength. The power of the rays of light that gives abundance to the crops and their people.
The suit is made with red rooster feathers and yellow feathers focusing the rays of the sun. Design by David Matú and Roberto Steps Dominguez.
