The Mayan world tree is one of my favorite cosmic symbols, derived from the Mayan cosmology. Now, since I do my best to stay true to the original symbol and its meaning, I was glad to receive (after placing the diagram on my FB fan page) the following explanation from Nefer Khefri
who holds a Ph.D. In Mayan Studies
”This is the mirror image of the stone carving from the Mayan site of Izapa, Stela # 25. The World Tree sprouts from the body of a caiman with the Celestial Bird perched on top. The shaman on the left (or ancient ruler, scholars aren't 100% sure either way) is holding a power staff through which he communicates with, and probably is manifesting, a glorified ancestor. Izapa is an incredibly interesting site & I wish more was written upon it. I hold a doctorate in Mayan studies from UT-Austin & often wish I had focused on it instead of the Mayan ballgame for my dissertation. Spiritually speaking, this is a VERY powerful image. You're doing an awesome job.
The Image of the Mayan World Tree is an accurate depiction of the Ceiba
Tree with its bottle like trunk covered with thorns which reminded the ancient Mayan people the body of a crocodile. The crocodile tree became a symbol of the cosmos or the Milky Way
and the reason that I chose this symbol is because it is one of the first human symbols of the cosmos and because we are all eventually Starchildren. Every atom in our body came straight out of the furnaces of long-forgotten supernovas in the far regions of space.
This is a powerful symbol because it actually depicts pure consciousnes
s - it shows the human being, the Starchild looking and trying to understand itself - the universe.
The stone at the bottom is, of course, a genuine rare Moldavite tektite
- the remains of a meteorite impact that took place some 15 million years ago and can be found in the regions of the Czech Republic.
Many of you asked me to create something with this beautiful tektite, which is known for its spiritual characteristics. When I found these pieces of Moldavite a few months ago I knew that I have to come up with something special...
