On Tuesday, the Mexican star shared a photo where she posed next to chandeliers that included glass hummingbirds.
Hayek, who just celebrated her 57th birthday, shared some information about how the Mayans, a Mesoamerican civilization that existed from antiquity to the early modern period, saw hummingbirds. “The Mayan legend considers hummingbirds as messengers from the deceased,” she wrote.
“The hummingbird is also an animal that represents joy and luck. So maybe when we see them it’s our loved ones reminding us to be joyous and to have hope, worst-case scenario they’re just gorgeous to watch,” she concluded.
