Mythology has lef
a powerful legacy in Mexico, going back as far as the ancient Toltecs,
Olmecs, Aztecs and Mayans. It has survived for more than twenty
generations through paintings, sculpture, crafts and stories. Like
all great systems of thought, mythology aims to understand the
world, to raise consciousness and to enable humankind to move closer
to the creator.
Central to this philosophy is the concept of duality, by which
opposite principles struggle not to override each other but to
in a spiral, changing the world and renewing life at a cosmic level.
The principle of duality is personified in Quetzalcoatl, who is
represented by the plumed serpent, symbolizing both the earthly
(the snake) and the divine condition (the bird): the symbol of
humankind and its possibilities.
Mythology is the realm in which reality and imagination meet,
where future and past make the present, where humankind and god
a person, where body and spirit make the heart beat. Mythology
in Mexico – like
he Mayan pyramids still partially buried under masses of rubble – once
uncovered, still dazzles us with its beauty.
