One of the most famous of all creation stories is that found within the Book of Genesis, where the Judaeo-Christian god is said to have created the world in six days. Prior to the coming of Christianity to Mesoamerica, its peoples also had their own creation myths, the most significant that we know of today being the Popol Vuh. These were a branch of the Maya that dominated the western highlands of modern day Guatemala prior to the arrival of the Spanish in the 16 th century. It has been suggested that the Popol Vuh is a compilation of oral traditions, and is believed to have only been written down some time in the middle of the 16 th century. The 18 th century translation of the Popol Vuh Wikimedia Commons. The Popol Vuh may be divided into three parts. In the creation myth of the Popol Vuhthere were two creator gods, Gucumatz and Tepeu. After creating the earth out of the primordial sea, they decided to populate it with animals. They realized later that the animals were unable to speak, and so could not worship, invoke, or glorify them. Thus the gods failed with their first effort. How else can we be invoked and remembered on the face of the earth? In order to be worshipped, the gods decided to create human beings, whilst the animals became food for humans. Painted by Lacambalam. Motif taken from an ancient Maya ceramic. Wikimedia Commons. But they saw that it was still not good. It merely came undone and crumbled. It merely became sodden and mushy. It merely fell apart and dissolved. Its head was not set apart properly. Its face could only look in one direction. Its face was hidden. Neither could it look about. At first it spoke, but without knowledge. Straightaway it would merely dissolve in water, for it was not strong. Next, the gods experimented with wood. The people carved out of wood could speak, and began to populate the earth. They did not possess, however, hearts and minds, and were destroyed by a flood. Those who survived were said to have been transformed into monkeys. The family tree of the gods and demigods of the Popol Vuh. After the story of the Hero Twins, the Popol Vuh returns to the creation of human beings. This time, the gods succeed, and human beings were created out of maize. Until today, maize is still seen as a sacred and divine food, and honoured as such. This time the beings shaped by the gods are everything they hoped for and more: not only do the first four men pray to their makers, but they have perfect vision and therefore perfect knowledge. This perfection alarmed the gods. It is obvious from the writings in Popol Vuh that the gods did not want these creations to have the ability to become like gods themselves, but simply wanted to limit the capacity of humans to mere worship. According to Popol Vuh, that is what they achieved in that fourth and last experiment of creation. The gods are alarmed that beings who were merely manufactured by them should have divine powers, so they decide, after their usual dialogue, to put a fog on human eyes. BBC, Maestri, N.
Popol VuhMaya document, an invaluable source of knowledge of ancient Mayan mythology and culture. His work is now in the Newberry LibraryChicago. In archaeologist Richard Hansen discovered two 8-metre- foot- long panels carved in stucco from the pre-Classic Mayan site of El Mirador, Guatemala, that depict aspects of the Popol Vuh. The panels—which date to about bcesome years before the Classic-period fluorescence of Mayan culture—attested to the antiquity of the Popol Vuh. In explaining how the Mayan gods created the world, the Popol Vuh features the Hero Twins, Hunahpu and Xbalanque, who were transformed into, respectively, the Sun and the Moon. One of the panels depicts the Hero Twins beneath a bird deity; the other panel features a Mayan maize corn god surrounded by a serpent.

No se manifestaba la faz de la tierra. Estaban ocultos bajo plumas verdes y azules. Luego la tierra fue creada por ellos. Conviene que en lo sucesivo haya quien los guarde. Al punto fueron creados los venados y las aves. En seguida les repartieron sus moradas los venados y a las aves:. Entonces se les dijo:. Y en seguida fueron a ponerlos sobre un hormiguero.

Popol Vuh began as an electronic music project, but under Fricke's leadership they soon abandoned synthesizers for organic instrumentation and world music influences. The first album, Affenstundereleased incan be regarded as one of the earliest space music works, featuring the then new sounds of the Moog synthesizer together with ethnic percussion. This album also marked the start of exploring overtly religious themes rather than a more generally spiritual feeling within the music. The group evolved to include a range of instruments: wind and stringselectric and acoustic alike, combined to convey a mystical aura that made their music spiritual and introspective. Popol Vuh influenced many other European bands with their uniquely soft but elaborate instrumentation, which took inspiration from the music of TibetAfricaand pre-Columbian America. With music sometimes described as "ethereal", they created soundscapes through psychedelic walls of sound, and are regarded as precursors of contemporary world musicas well as of new age and ambient. Florian Fricke died in Munich on 29 December and the group disbanded. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Popol Vuh. Retrieved 21 May Acclaimed Music.

Like the Chilam Balam and similar texts, the Popol Vuh is of particular importance given the scarcity of early accounts dealing with Mesoamerican mythologies. After the Spanish conquestmissionaries and colonists destroyed many documents. At that time the Order's documents were taken over largely by the Universidad de San Carlos. With assistance from the Guatemalan historian and archivist Juan GavarreteScherzer copied or had a copy made of the Spanish content from the last half of the manuscript, which he published upon his return to Europe. However, whereas Scherzer copied the manuscript, Brasseur apparently stole the university's volume and took it back to France. InAyer decided to donate his 17, pieces to The Newberry Library in Chicago, a project that was not completed until Recinos is generally credited with finding the manuscript and publishing the first direct edition since Scherzer. No evidence of such a codex has yet been found. There he states that many of the natives' practices can be "seen in a book that they have, something like a prophecy, from the beginning of their [pre-Christian] days, where they have all the months and signs corresponding to each day, one of which I have in my possession. Apart from this, Woodruff surmises that because "Ximenez never discloses his source, instead inviting readers to infer what they wish [ The implied alternative is that he or another missionary made the first written text from an oral recitation. In the Underworld the twins faced many trials filled with trickery; eventually they fail and are put to death. Popol Vuh encompasses a range of subjects that includes creation, ancestry, history, and cosmology. There are no content divisions in the Newberry Library's holograph, but popular editions have adopted the organization imposed by Brasseur de Bourbourg in in order to facilitate comparative studies. Still it is hushed, Be it empty as well its womb sky. Hushed and empty is the womb of the sky. Christenson Since its rediscovery by Europeans in the 19th century, the Popol Vuh has attracted the attention of many creators of cultural works. Mexican painter Diego Rivera did a series of watercolors in as illustrations for the book. Their debut album, Affenstundereflected this spiritual connection. The text was used by German film director Werner Herzog as extensive narration for the first chapter of his movie Fata Morgana Herzog and Fricke were life long collaborators and friends. The Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera began writing his opus 44 symphonic work Popol Vuh in but left the work incomplete at his death in Contemporary archaeologists first of all Michael D. Coe have found depictions of characters and episodes from Popol Vuh on Mayan ceramics and other art objects e. Richard D. Hansen found a stucco frieze depicting two floating figures that might be the Hero Twins     at the site of El Mirador. Following the Twin Hero narrative, mankind is fashioned from white and yellow corn, demonstrating the crop's transcendent importance in Maya culture.
It was an amazing trip, and when I come back I will use NV again. Excellent service from the word 'Go'. At one point on the holiday there was a discrepancy between what was on our voucher and what the hotel thought were the arrangements for the evening meal, but after a quick e-mail from me she sorted it out there and then. Overall a great holiday experience, we were very pleased that after e-mail discussion with our consultant we changed our preferred vehicle to larger AWD type, in particular when travelling through the ice and snow. We appreciated very much the map with hand written suggestions and all accommodation marked. The written itinerary was an excellent guide. Combined with the GPS supplied meant we did not get lost. We thought the tour was very professionally organised and we had no problems whatsoever and would certainly recommend Nordic Visitor. However personally we like to travel a little slower and would have liked at least one more 2 night stay in a hotel, as we felt some days seemed too long by the time we got to our accommodation. We didn't enjoy the Western Fjords as much as the rest of the country and if would recommend others to spend a similar number of days in Iceland but without visiting the Fjords. The last day we felt was a bit of a rush to get the car back in time as we had an early flight the next day. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We were very impressed with the efficiency of everything which Nordic Visitor organised. The accommodation was varied and very friendly. The hand- annotated road map was especially useful. We saw things which we would not have found ourselves because they had been highlighted on the map or in the itinerary. An especial highlight was the haycart puffin tour at Ingolshofthi. Car hire was also an efficient and quick affair, much better than our last car-hire experience in France. We had not realised just how large Iceland is and we would love to return to see the rest of the country. The overall organization was very well executed. We had our reservations made everywhere we went, with pre-booked departures on the tours we wanted to take. This eliminated the deception of showing up at the counter and being told that the tour is full and not able to register. It allowed us to benefit from every hour we were in Iceland. The small car was in good condition (Ford Focus). Great service, great suggestions. The map outlined and prepared for us was great, along with ideas and suggestions for each day. It was just enough. Thank you VERY MUCH.
