It's very lovely...but how in the Hell do you pronounce Quetzalcoalt???

It's spelled Quetzalcoatl actually (last two letters are swapped) and IIRC it's (roughly and psuedo-phonetically) kweh-tsahl-koh-at-el, but wikipedia suggests the 'w' sound is missing, so it's sort of like ketsa-co-attle.  I've pronounced it the first way all my life, so I suppose I've been doing it wrong.  :blush:  Learn something new every day.

By the way, the piece is gorgeous.  I love the colors and the exquisite balance.

I LOVE this piece, I adore art based off gods because of the artistic freedoms you can take with them. This is no exception, the Jaguar god looks the part of a hunter and I can appreciate not making the feathered serpent anthromorphic . Great piece.

:icontrippy-plz:

not enough people take ancient mythology seriously. these stories were passed down to help learn and keep us, the ancestors, safe from the same things happening again....

the age old tradition of passing on blood stories has slipped away.......

and mankind is left, thinking we are the only sentient species, and that we own this world, that in reality owns us...

yup, I seriously research the links between ancient world cultures... and their hidden meanings...

so much of the old stories are simply metaphors that could really change modern life. its a shame most people cant be bothered looking into ancient history.

its always a real pleasure to see someone honouring the ancient ancestors :huggle:

have a wonderful day my friend !
