Description

Garr has created another digital painting featuring Mexican mythological imagery.

 

He has imagined the Pyramid of Kukulkan during an eje mundial (world axis) power cycle event.

 

Atop the pyramid, the symbol for the moon goddess Coyolxauhqui can be seen to have erupted in cosmic flames. This has summoned Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec feathered serpent god of the wind and air – the same deity as the Mayan Kukulkan for whom the pyramid was built. His symbol is manifested in the sky above the pyramid.

 

The image of Coyolxauhqui is based on a carved (and brightly painted) stone excavated at the Templo Mayor in México City. The Aztec artist of the Coyolxauhqui stone carved this circular image in high relief out of a single large stone, 3.25m (about 10 feet) in diameter.

 

The image for Quetzalcoatl is taken from the 16th century Codex Telleriano-Remensis, one of the finest surviving examples of Aztec manuscript painting.

 

A single Mayan warrior sentinel has materialised to protect the unfolding event from disruption by an invading horde of Tlaxcalan warriors.
