Mosaic of the Maya

Mosaic of the Mosaic

This mosaic shield was part of the LACMA exhibit, Children of the Plumed Serpent: The Legacy of Quetzalcoatl in Ancient Mexico. Personally, the mosaic spoke to me, due to the intricate nature of the tiles which were made of turquoise and placed on wood using gum- and which has held together for nearly a thousand years.

Truly, this is a beautiful piece of ancient art which highlights the richness of Mayan culture.
