The Labyrinth

Yaxchilan: The Labyrinth [January 3, 2004]

"...As you emerged into the light, your eyes fell on the plaza--the model of the world, a cosmogram, with symbolic mountains, caves, forests, and waters arranged intentionally to strike awe in the observer and open his senses to the gods. It worked."

Christopher Shaw, Sacred Monkey River: A Canoe Trip with the Gods, p. 272
