Vintage 900 Silver Brooch of Mayan Priest Smoking

This is an unusual 900 silver brooch depicting a Mayan priest smoking a cheroot. The brooch is marked 900 for silver content, GUATE for Guatemala, and an illegible maker's mark - possibly TM followed by 3 horizontal bars. The priests costume has a thin layer of gold over the headdress and loin cloth. The gold has not been tested. The brooch has a simple hook clasp with an additional twist of wire that serves as a safety catch to hold the pin in place.

The brooch weighs 5.6 gr. It measures 2.125" tall by .875" across.

Condition is good.

What is he smoking?!! He looks happy about it whatever it is.
