About This Image

When we think of the Mayan ruins, we tend to think of the big known places like Chichen Itza and Palenque. There are a handful of major Mayan cities that have captured attention, but like our world today, every city is not a major one. On my first visit to the Yucatan, I took a guided tour of some of the Mayan ruins and our guide would point out large mounds that were likely Mayan ruins along the roadside as we traveled. He indicated that there are a great deal of ruins that have yet to be explored by archaeologists.

The Mayan ruins at Kabah are connected by a pedestrian road to the more well-known ruins of Uxmal, but visiting Kabah is more akin to visiting a ghost town. There were few other tourists at the site. Although these Mayan ruins were documented in the mid 19th century, it’s only been in the past decades that there’s been any real work to clear and restore the site for visitors. It was a real treat to stand in the midst of these less-visited but no-less beautiful Mayan ruins.

The architecture of the region has its own local flavor and is known as Puuc architecture. It has the same Mesoamerican feel as the other Mayan ruins but like our cities and towns today, it had its own interpretation on the theme and made me long for more time to explore the lesser-known Mayan ruins. This particular structure was likely a palace and sits behind the main plaza in Kabah.

Of all the buildings at Kabah, this one spoke to me the most and begged to be photographed. I am honestly unable to pinpoint a single reason. The lines of the Mayn architecture in general and the ruins of the vaulted rooms along the front just jumped out for me.

Do these Mayan ruins speak to you as well? Have you perhaps visited Kabah? Or are you simply fascinated by the indigenous cultures of North America? I hop you might take a moment to share what speaks to you most in this Mayan ruins print?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
