Historical Context:
The “Pokolpok” ball game, recognized as a precursor to modern soccer, stands as one of the world’s most ancient team sports. Played with rubber balls crafted from tree sap, teams would aim to pass the ball through court hoops using permitted body parts – hips, shoulders, and elbows. This painting not only illustrates the game but also intertwines the symbolic Mayan calendar and the snake emblem, representing health and fortune.
