Located in cases just inside the pyramid, the Spirits in Wood were created by village craftsmen and carved out of wood to represent animals, beasts, and humans. In ancient times children were told about mythical creatures in the woods that would bring them harm if they ventured too far into the forests. Today, the artists who create them are said to have captured the spirits of the creatures in the branches of the tree that they are carved from. In addition to what you’ll find in the cases, there is a craftsperson exhibiting the creation of these pieces in Plaza de Los Amigos at the bottom of the staircase.
