No one knows for sure where the Mayan went, after suddenly disappearing around the year 1,000. Some believe they may have gone to North America, migrating as far north as Georgia or possibly to the Ohio Valley and having a connection with Serpent Mound near Cincinnati Ohio.

Mayan book

It doesn’t take long to discover that Belize is a land of contrasts. From the poverty and disarray of the cities to the quiet countryside, many differences are soon found. With poverty and crime running rampant in cities such as Belize City and Belmopan, the traveler has to be constantly aware of his surroundings and protect whatever is being carried. Remember,that camera hanging around your neck is worth more than the average Belizean earns in a year. All that aside, the Mayan people are wonderfully warm people many of whom go out of their way to please visitors. Traveling into the countryside one discovers thatch roof homes with no doors or windows. Because of the warm climate , they can live comfortably all year with a gentle breeze flowing through the open windows and doors. I was struck with the concept that although no utility lines were visible, a lot of homes had a satellite dish in the front yard.

Available in both hard copy and Ebook format.

The Mayan Stela played an important role in the history of the Mayan culture. Their primary function was to record the life of a particular individual, by celebrating key events in a person’s life, such as birth, marriage, military victories and death. Displayed prominently in Mayan Culture, they depict the story and history of the Ancient Mayan Culture.

Stelae were considered sacred and,  thought to contain a divine soul-like essence that almost made them living beings. Some were apparently given individual names in hieroglyphic texts and were considered to be participants in rituals conducted at their location.

color slides114

A stela was not just considered a neutral portrait, it was considered sacred and to be ‘owned’ by the subject, whether that subject was a person or a god.

Royal artisans were sometimes responsible for sculpting stelae and in some cases these sculptors were the sons of kings. Many times it is likely that captive artisans from defeated cities were put to work raising stelae for the victors, as evidenced by the sculptural style of one city appearing upon monuments of its conqueror soon after its defeat

The most typical colours found in the cave art are black and red. The pigment-based and sculpted cave art exhibit differences that go beyond the use of different media and techniques. They vary so much they seem to have different motives, possibly because they were sculpted by different people.

Throughout ancient Mesoamerica, caves were perceived as important features of the sacred landscape. As in many ancient cultures, caves were adorned with rock art  detailing acts of creation and the emergence of human beings from the underworld
