This set of Maya Playing Cards highlights primarily the art of the Maya, taking original works of murals, glyphs, and crafts. We highlight 4 of the most important Mayan gods.

  • Yum Kax, the Corn God/Diamonds
  • Kauil, the God of Fire/Hearts
  • Kukulkan, the Feathered Serpent/Clubs
  • Ah Puch, the God of Death/Spades

Each stick has an important meaning depending on the god that it personifies, but the different sticks also have important meanings according to the symbol.

Diamonds are interpreted as corn in the Mayan world. Corn is the substance from which man was created. Diamonds, then, have the god, Yum Kax, as the God of Corn — the creator of life.

Hearts — the heart is where the strength of man emanates, very commonly related to emperors; fire is interpreted by the god “Kauil” — the God of Fire and Wisdom.

Clubs — this symbol relates to the ceiba, the sacred tree of the Maya, where the first man was born. The Ceiba is born from the center of the earth. Its trunks and branches support the sky and its roots penetrate the Mayan underworld. The god of this stick is Kukulkan, the Feathered Serpent.

Spades are closely linked to the ceiba. Spades relate to the underworld that is dominated by the god, Ah Puch.

Artistic Details

In the edition of LA CEIBA, we highlight the link between the underworld and the earth, highlighting with a golden ink the Aces, Spades and Clubs and the 7 of Clubs to highlight this beautiful link.

MAYA Numbers and Glyphs

The deck is designed to spread the Mayan culture and its knowledge so that the numbers were supplanted by Mayan numerology and the letters by glyphs. Inside the deck there is a special card where the meaning of each one is explained and it is very simple to identify them.


In this edition we have, in the center, a symbol similar to yin and yang but it really is a god — the greatest god of the Maya, HANAB KU. It is said that from him all things are born, because it houses all dualities, the father of all gods and is a disembodied entity.

This is an excellent deck for play, cardistry and magic. This edition does not contain any additional cards for magic. If you are interested, check the Magic White and Black edition.
