Behind the Gold Mine Margarita
Gold was a symbol of the divine from the civilization that brought us the Mayan calendar, built the Chichén Iztá, and had the most accurate pre-telescope astronomy. Seen as a gift from the gods, gold was used in almost every aspect of Mayan tradition. Ancient artists used gold to create ornaments, jewelry, and garments to signify power and prestige. Performance pieces with elaborate headdresses and bells were designed to reflect the sun and dazzle audiences from a long distance.
Gold signifies an individual’s identity and high ranking in Mayan society. Because of its immunity to decay, gold came to symbolize immortality and dominion worldwide. Although the Mayans used materials such as jade, copper, and obsidian, gold was preferred, as it could be molded into refined shapes. The process of how they managed to melt gold and mold it is the subject of many theories and discussions. The level of sophistication in the gold jewelry and artifacts discovered at the bottom of wells and underground caves can only be replicated with modern-day technology, leaving the Mayans’ lost secrets buried deep within the walls of time.
We welcome you to add your theory to the mystery as you sit back and savor The Gold Mine Margarita on the Rooftop bar at Garza Blanca Resort & Spa, Cancun, Mexico.
