Mayan Art
I have always been drawn to the intricate details and graceful lines of Maya art and glyphs. The aesthetics of their written language, or logoglyphs, were as important as the actual message to the Maya scribes. To that, their literal meanings were enhanced often through embellishment and visual representation.
The more I studied the ancient Maya culture and inscriptions, the more I was drawn to their understanding that nature and life are repetitive and their visual use of those thoughts as shown in their glyph enhancements. This is even true of their calendar. It does not predict the end of the world, but a new cycle, a new beginning.
