    Maya Maya Ballgame Yucatan Quintana Roo
    Description
    A professional ballplayer and instructor at the Juego del Sol school in Quintana Roo, Mexico, the only school in existence teaching young Maya boys the 3,000-year-old Maya Ballgame. The ballplayers assume spirit attributes of specific animals, in this case the speed, grace, agility and intelligence of the ocelot. He is holding an eight-pound natural rubber ball and plays on the first stone Maya Ballcourt built since the Spanish Conquest in the 1500s.
