Symbols carry the soul of culture, and every culture’s symbols represent its inner reality. Symbology can be anything, a gesture, a song, a phrase or an image. Many layers of meaning that everyone in the culture understands intuitively... subconsciously.... effortlessly..... I study these gestures the way people use their hands & movement to communicate #bodylanguage

My personal favorite Mayan symbol is the feathered serpent deity Kukulkan was known to other Mesoamerican cultures like the Aztecs and Olmecs who worshipped the god under different names.
The myth surrounding this deity mention the god as a creator of the cosmos in the Popul Vuh, the Kiche Maya sacred book.
The serpent god is also called the Vision Serpent ✨🐍 Feathers represent the god’s ability to soar in the heavens while as a serpent the god can also travel the earth.
Kukulkan cult temples during the Post-Classical era can be found in Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Mayapan.
The serpent cult emphasized peaceful trade and good communication among the cultures. #key #whereibelong
The magical snake can shed its skin, symbolizing renewal and rebirth*
