Chaak Tun socks, R0425
Dennis has been interested in ancient cultures ever since he was a young adult: Greek and Roman mythology, the cultures of the Maya, Aztecs and Inca, and many others. He is inspired by the art of these cultures. One famous Mayan symbol is the two-headed eagle. It represents a god with two faces: one looks toward goodness, the other toward evil; or toward heaven and earth, past and future, or forwards and backwards at the same time. These socks are named after a subterranean river in the Chaak Tun caves. This was a sacred place for the Maya. Chaak is the god of rain, and for the Maya, the cave was Chaak's rain of stones. The motif on the back of the socks is a graphic depiction of waves in the river.
