Mayan Majesty

Mayan Majesty

A full view of a Mayan round mosaic shield. This artwork was part of the LACMA exhibit, “Children of the Plumed Serpent: The Legacy of Quetzalcoatl in Ancient Mexico”. This mosaic resonated with me- the colours, the details, the amount of work that must have went into affixing tiny chips of turquoise to wood with natural gum… and then lasted for almost a millenium and counting.

Seriously, this piece demonstrates how much beauty the First Nations were capable of.
