Mayan Creation Myth by TheK40 Mayan Creation Myth by TheK40
My interpretation of the Mayan Creation Myth in a tapestry comic format.

"In the beginning were only Tepeu and Gucumatz. These two sat together and thought, and whatever they thought came into being. They thought earth, and there it was. They thought mountains, and so there were. They thought trees, and sky, and animals. Each came into being. Because none of these creatures could praise them, they formed more advanced beings of clay. Because the clay beings fell apart when wet, they made beings out of wood; however, the wooden beings caused trouble on the earth. The Gods sent a great flood to wipe out these beings, so that they could start over. With the help of Mountain Lion, Coyote, Parrot, and Crow they fashioned four new beings. These four beings performed well and are the ancestors of the Quiché."

Medium: Color pencil on brown paper

Edit: OH Snap! Thanks so much for the DD! ;u;
