Visionary Art: Creating Maya Pyramids using UK Landscapes

Here’s a Graphics that I created recently for the newly published `Yule Rites’ book.

Guess what? I didn’t get on a plane and go to the land of the ancient Aztecs or Mayas, to get photos.   Below are the actual photos I have used in creating this Maya Pyramid scene.   The steps were created using sections of a photo repeated and pasted. This is just for fun..

By the way, the baby I am holding in the photo is my nephew 🙂

ps. I’ll do a mini-blog another time on how the `Mayan Priest’  graphics was created. Would you believe it has features of an arch from a Church?

Photos of a metal Maya Calender Dish, Tree in Croydon, Masked face & an outdoor garden (steps) in Surrey were used for  creating the Maya landscape.
