Man burning incense, Chichicastenango.  At the steps of a 400-year old church of Santo Tomas. Shamans use it for their rituals, burning incense and candles and in special cases a chicken for the gods. Each of the 18 stairs that lead up to the church stands for one month of the Mayan calendar year. The Mayan calendar has 18 month of 20 days each. (image by phil suarez)
