Teonanacatl is the word for "Flesh of the Gods" in the language of the Nahua Mayan natives of Chiapas, Mexico. I learned this word during my travels in Chiapas to the Mayan temples and beyond in December 2012. Commonly known as the psychedelic Psilocybin mushroom, these were used ritualistically by the Mayan people of ages past for spiritual awakening, visions, and healing. These mushrooms have been said to have come to earth by a spore from other worlds.
In the top of the design is depicted the Flower of Life as the sun, and below the mushrooms there are roots, also called mycelium. The mushrooms are depicted in true color for some species, with brown orange caps and purple spores. Around the stems spirals DNA. The purple Metatron's cube rests at the base of the mushrooms; this is one of the basic structures and building blocks of the universe. Below that are depicted the five platonic solids, which represent the most basic forms in the universe, as well as their elements. The blue is an icosahedron (water), the green a dodecahedron (spirit), the yellow an octahedron (air), the orange a cube (earth), and the red a tetrahedron (fire). Reaching up through the darkness are purple amethyst crystals. The pattern in the background is an alien language. This piece was created during the Sun in Aries and it was completed on the Full Moon.

**This is an art print of a photo of a tapestry that I made.
***It is a thick PAPER photo art print, not a tapestry.
The original tapestry was made using the ancient Indonesian dyeing technique called "Batik."
Layers of wax are carefully applied in lines and designs, then the fabric is dyed.
The wax resists the dye so it leaves white lines where it is applied.
This process may be repeated several times to add layers of color.
Then the wax is melted and washed out, leaving lines of white or color where the wax had been.
