Folksy version of Maximon or San Simon as he is known by the indigenous Mayan people in Guatemala. He is extremely revered for his incredible powers that grant protection from evil spirits, spells, and enemies. He is also invoked for help in finding wives, husbands, money, jobs, health, and good luck. There are several small villages in Guatemala where idols of Maximon are preciously guarded. His idol moves among different members of the cofradia or religious elite and it is considered a great honor to host Maximon in their homes. When people come to visit him they often leave offerings of alcohol or cigars. He is most often represented wearing a black suit, a hat, and smoking a cigar. In this version of Maximon you can put an incense cone under his body and it comes out through his cigar. 3 incense cones are included. The box he is seated in is 7.5" tall and 4" wide.
