The Maa'ala Design
The Maa’ala snake refers to the totemic animal of the Uraliyu clan and is based on one of its myths. Following the Wayuu oral tradition, Maa’ala was a young woman, who refused to marry. So, she was bewitched by the man who was in love with her. Condemned to be transformed into a snake, Maa’ala preferred to live as a snake and wander through the Caribbean desert, instead of bearing children in the Wayuu polygynist society.
Our Maa'ala Green impact:
In the 1970s, Wayuu tapestry or image making was particularly popular.
