Uxmal, Pyramid of the Magician

Uxmal: El Adivino at Dawn [June 12, 1995]

"The pyramid is an image of the world; in turn, that image of the world is a projection of human society. If it is true that man invents gods in his own image, it is also true that he sees his own image in the images that the sky and the earth offer him. Man makes human history of the inhuman landscape; nature turns history into cosmogony, the dance of the stars."

Octavio Paz, The Other Mexico, p. 294
