Tree of Life, Ya'axche Tree 
Ya'axche, the sacred tree of the Mayan and many Indigenous cultures of the Americas. The Tree of Life connects the underworld, earth, and the heavens, linking the four directions with it's branches. A Mayan tale warns at dark a beautiful woman will be by this tree and lure men to their demise. A warning to go straight home after work. 
Women could press their palm on the tree trunk, as the gentleman is displaying, and the impressions left will tell them how many children they will have.
