While mainly recognized today as the basis for chocolate, cocoa was much more to the ancient Maya civilization. Believed to be a gift from the gods, cocoa was cultivated and used by the Mayan civilization from at least the 5th-6th centuries BC. Its role in society was all-encompassing, ranging from a sacramental offering in various rituals, to a prestige foodstuff associated with high status and special occasions, to a form of currency used to pay public and private debt. Our design features the Maya glyph representing the syllables KA-KA-Wa (cocoa), found on pottery from a tomb in Rio Azul dating AD 460-480.
