Default Exo-Terra Mayan background

anyone have one that they would like to unload? I'm looking to put it in a larger viv than what it comes in. Thanks for any interest.

I was thinking of doing this but opted for a different theme instead. What I found on EBay were some authentic artifacts, some at decent prices---like, actual Mayan statuettes for a couple hundred bucks, and smaller items for less. Check it out.

No, I'm not rich, but $200 for an actual artifact seems reasonable. There are other things for a lot less. I just have a monthly 'mad money' account that I can do whatever I want with...

Uuuuuhhhh...... I think that buying actual artifacts may be illegal. In the distant past I got a degree in archaeology & anthropology & what you have may represent the looting of a country's heritage. You either got duped or are aNinternational criminal.

Hope I didn't rain on your day too much...

I'm sure it depends on the source. I would hope those selling things on Ebay are not looters, but merely private collectors with legitimate finds selling their private property. If you have particular opinions on the items you see on Ebay, do share. I suppose it's good I didn't buy anything like that yet based on this new and very polarized info.

You have to remember...the Maya people are still alive today. So they in turn can make a piece of art, and sell it legitimately as Mayan art. It's just not ancient Mayan art. That is FAR more expensive.
