Caption:

In an era where the men of many villages have abandoned traditional clothing, the men of Petzal preserve their heritage. Their clothing is one of the most striking ensembles in all of Guatemala. The woven geometric designs on the cuffs and collars, the dark shawl, hat and white pants are unique to the community.
