Our San Pablito Protection Shirt is inspired and honors El Señor Del Monte, powerful deity of the mountains in the Otomi and Mazatec culture.
The traditional manufacture of Amate bark paper has persisted from Pre Hispanic times. The paper is used to cut out figures which are believed to possess magical properties and are used as offerings to the Earth.
The Otomis, make payment for everything they require. The mountains receive ceremonial tribute in return for trees and for successful crops, the earth is repaid with offerings and paper cuts.
