Kristen VanZandt (KVZ) designs each beaded mosaic, which is then crafted by Tz'utujil Maya artisans onto Guatemalan 1 quetzal coins. The quetzal owes its name to a rare and beautiful bird that lives in Central America. The coins were commissioned to commemorate the end of the 30 year civil war with the inscription “Paz” (Peace) in the likeness of a stylized dove, with the inscription “Paz Firme y Duradera” (Firm and Lasting Peace).
