Mayan God Video

This video from a process of making Mayan god acrylic palette knife painting. 'Mayan God' - acrylic painting portrayed a mask one of the main gods of ancient maya. The ancient Maya had a complex pantheon of deities whom they worshipped and offered human sacrifices. The Mayan vision of the universe is divided into multiple levels, above and below earth, positioned within the four directions of north, south, east and west. After death, the soul was believed to go to the Underworld, Xibalba (shee bal bah), a place of fright where sinister gods tested and tricked their unfortunate visitors. This painting is from series of artworks dedicated to ancient beliefs and ezoteric secret knowledges.
