Maracas are rattles used in many types of Latin and Caribbean music, but their origins lie far back in time when the shaman or witch doctor summoned supernatural beings and healed the sick by shaking rattles. These maracas were made from small dried calabash fruits that were filled with beans or pebbles and fitted with a wooden handle to seal the gourd and to hold when shaking it. They are all hand painted the same vivid blue with a figure of a man standing in the midst of green plants and the word "Mexico" painted in black to the right of each figure.
