Rabinal Achi festival, Guatemala

This weekend the annual Carnival started. I thought it would be an appropriate time to show this card.

The card was sent from Guatemala and pictures the Rabinal Achí play. The origin of this old Maya drama dated back almost 500 years. Since colonization of Guatemala in the sixteenth century it has been performed every year on 25 January.
