Hand carved Yum Kaax, Mayan corn god necklace.

Yum Kaax, is a name in the Mayan language to represent the god or deity of wild vegetation and as well as the guardian of its animals and the jungle. He can use his power to extend that protection to the cornfields (one of the most important sources of Mayan agricultural production) and other fields of vegetable crops against the attacks of the wild nature represented or created by this same god. For this reason, the Mayan farmers invoked him and offered him the first fruits or vegetables from their fields in order to ask him for protection of their crops. He is also considered the owner of the forest animals, which is why he was invoked by hunters. This god can manifest himself to hunters who ask him for help through songs to ensure a successful hunt and that the arrows magically return to the archer.
