by Caron Mosey, Flushing, MI

The title “2013: Mayan Tree of Life Lives” is in reference to the 2012 phenomenon that says based on the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mayan Long Count calendar, the world will end on December 21,2012,

The Maya believe that the universe is divided into 5 sacred regions. Each region is represented by the following:

East – Red – Fire
North – White – Air
West – Black – Water
South – Yellow – Earth

In the middle is the Ceiba Tree which is the sacred Tree of Life of the Maya. Incense was important to the Maya; it was said to manifest and gratify the presence of the gods, with fragrance being a divinity attribute. The incensario at the bottom right corner is based on ancient Mayan artifacts and when lit, raises the fragrance of life up towards the heavens.
