About This Image:

The first time I had a real taste of the Mayan Mystery was standing before the Temple of Kukulkan at Chichen Itza some years ago. I had long been interested in the Mesoamerican cultures and the artifacts they left behind, but no amount of reading seems to prepare one for the feeling of standing before those massive Mayan pyramids. And Chichen Itza was my first real-life taste of the Maya. I’ve been to several of their ancient cities in Mexico since then, but the Mayan Mystery endures no matter how many you see.

I have visited Chichen Itza twice now and it was no less majestic for having seen it before. It’s truly one of those ancient ruins that I would visit again and again given the chance. I think there’s a reason that the great pyramid known to many as El Castillo has captured our collective imaginations. It feels like the epitome of the Mayan mystery. And that was what influenced this particular artwork. I wanted to convey that since of not just scale but the sense that there’s a magic to this place. It’s something you sense standing there but I wanted it to be front and center in this vintage style print of those Mayan ruins.

Chances are if you’ve been to Cancun or Playa del Carmen, you’ve sampled the Mayan Mystery firsthand either at Chichen Itza or at Tulum. And I don’t doubt you left with that same sense of wonder particularly if you have stood before the great pyramid at Chichen Itza on a hot summer day. Or even a hot winter day as I experienced on my second visit. These are the ruins of a culture that flourished in the tropics after all!

Have you stood before the Temple of Kukulkan? Or have you simply been amazed by the Mayan mystery from afar? Whether or not you’ve been, if you love the mystery of ancient cultures, I suspect this print speaks to you as loudly as it does to me. I hope you’ll take a moment to share what catches your attention most in this particular Chichen Itza print?

Note: The ruins of Chichen Itza are a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.
