Last week we showed you a pic of this handsome guy, who you can see at the all-inclusive Secrets Huatulco Resort & Spa, an under-the-radar property just a two-hour flight away from Oaxaca.

Our question to you was, who is he? And it seems we stumped ya! Well, we can tell you, he is the epitome of Mexico's icons-a mariachi!

This guy is moved to different locations around the sprawling resort based on events they think he should guest star. When we visited in August, he stood outside a conference room during the FIFA World Cup finals while Mexico played Brazil. We were surprised he didn't fall over with all the commotion coming from the crowd.

But that might be because he's made of sturdy stuff. The sculpture, crafted by artisans from Jalisco, is constructed from strong wrought iron, hammered into this intricate shape, and accented with a rustic finish.

We like to keep it fun but informative here at HotelChatter so our series, What is This? is devoted to odd-looking items in hotels that upon first glance look as if they serve only a decorative purpose. But everything happens for a reason, right? And we're here to tell you what these things really do.

This one is kinda special. This piece is not actually in the rooms at seaside Secrets Huatulco, per se. But he is standing guard at this off-the-radar all-inclusive resort just a two hour flight from Oaxaca.

He is symbolic, and quite frankly, we think he's stunning, so we're bending the rules today because he'd totally be in our room for protection if the resort allowed such a thing.

Do you know who he is? His significance?

Give us your guess in the comments below!
