This is the third of three Solar/Corn God pieces called “Indigena: Fifth Sun.” During the December solstice, the sun is said to be reborn through the dark-rift of the Milky Way. This marks the rebirth of the Solar/Corn God. I borrowed the “Fifth Sun” title from The Mayan Fifth Sun concept. The Maya called an era a “sun”. In the Popul Vuh, the book of Mayan creation mythology, we are entering the “fifth sun” and the creation of a new age for humans. Original medium: mixed media composite (digital hybrid combining hand rendered art & photographic imagery).
