Mexico from Slides | Solo prt16: Inside a Temple

Inside a Temple

Inside a Temple

Inside the Temples were fine, mysterious reliefs. The low light suited that atmosphere quite well. The relief shows ‘K’inich Janaab’ Pakal’ or, ‘Pakal the Great’, who was born in 603 AD and ruled from 615 – 683. The relief shows a ritual with a life-giving corn-plant. What I especially liked about these reliefs are the great harmony of figures and background; or ‘form and non-form’. As if duality is brought to unity.

    There is also great harmony between the original figures and the forces that are consuming them. Beautiful framing and treatment, my friend.
