About This Image:
Having seen the Mayan architecture at Chichen Itza first, Uxmal felt much different from the very moment I entered the site and saw the imposing mass of the Magician’s Pyramid towering over me. And this structure is very much a different style of architecture. Where the pyramids at a place like Chichen Itza are very angular, as you can see, the great temple at Uxmal is rounded and curvaceous. There’s a style of Mayan architecture at Uxmal known as Puuc architecture, a style unique to the Puuc hills of Mexico.
The Mayan architecture in those hills was also an expression of the environment. Other Mayan cities of the Yucatan sat over cenotes, massive natural holes where underground water was plentiful. The cities of the Puuc region built large cisterns to collect rain water in the rainy season. Water was not in abundance in these dry hills which may play some part in the unique style of Mayan architecture there.
Some recent theories suggest that the collapse of the Mayan civilization may be down to droughts that occurred in the region prior to Spanish colonization of the Yucatan. If that’s the case, certainly places like Uxmal with no natural water source would have been the first to suffer. And the name of the Magician’s pyramid may even be a slight nod to the catastrophic change in fortunes for the Maya.
When the Spanish arrived, Uxmal had already been abandoned. This is one of the reasons so many of the Mayan buildings have Spanish names. But not this particular pyramid. The name of this pyramid comes from legends told by the Mayans who still lived near Uxmal when the Spanish arrived. These stories involved a dwarf or a magician – depending on who told the story. He arrived one day and, on a dare, built the massive pyramid overnight. To those survivors their own Mayan architecture seemed beyond anything their own ancestors could have built. Hence the magical legends of its construction.
I have always found the Mesoamerican cultures fascinating and seeing the rich variety of Mayan architecture has been a highlight of my trips to Mexico. I’d love the opportunity to re-visit the places I’ve been as well as explore more of the Mayan ruins that dot the region. It’s truly amazing to stand before these temples and this particular print really captures that larger than life feeling of the main temple at Uxmal.
Have you also visited Uxmal? Or are you just fascinated by the cultures that built the architecture seen in this Mayan print? I hope you might take a moment to share what speaks to you most in this, my best selling Uxmal print?
Note: Uxmal is a UNESCO designated World heritage site.

It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.

Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
