PEOPLE OF THE MAIZE CORN

The Story of Creation: People of the Maize (Corn)

Poetry Reading in Q'anjobal Maya by Gaspar Pedro Gonzalez Roda

http://ancientmayanpottery.blogspot.com/2012/07/video.html

When the gods created the world,

They created it from four colors:

Red, black, white and yellow.

Man was made of maize.

In the east the red corn,

In the west the black corn,

In the north the white corn,

In the south the yellow corn.

The goddess ixchel grounded on her stone

Kernels of each color.

And as a result,

A single masa of humankind

In the four corners of the world

• Mayan pottery and ocarina whistles were made with a low fire earthenware clay.

• They were painted with colored slip (watered down clay) that had different

colored pigments added to them.

• Their color palette was very limited and included white, black and shades of

orange, red and yellow.

• They also had a highly esteemed blue color that is referred to as “Mayan Blue”

“Mayan blue was created with extract from the

leaves of the indigo plant and a clay mineral

called palygorskite… We think that copal, the

sacred incense, may have been a third

ingredient. We're arguing that heat and perhaps

copal resin were the keys to fusing the indigo

extract and the clay mineral.”
