Garcia Sisters Tanah Mayan Art Museum


It all began when the sisters found a piece of slate in a field and were inspired to carve the rock into a whale. Although the tradition of slate carving had been lost since around 613 AD, the Garcia sisters say they found it within themselves to further the culture through this art form. Now guests can view an important part of the Maya heritage and even bring it home as a souvenir.
