The book of life: Xibalba's teeth (spoilers....duh) →

thebronyphilospher:

I recently read the Art of the Book of Life and there was an interesting design about Xibalba’s teeth that I recommend for you guys to look out for when seeing the movie.

When you see square teeth: he is being honest.
When you see sharp teeth: he is either being evil or angry.
And when you see…

World’s Most Beautiful Abandoned Places

Italian product manager and web designer Francesco Mugnai recently added a collection of images to his blog touting some of the most beautiful images of abandoned spots and modern ruins that he’d ever seen. The images Mugnai has captured come from empty castles, shuttered power plants, and dilapidated churches around the world. From a sunken yacht in Antarctica to a forever-closed amusement park in Japan, these images all make up a sort of anti-phoenix; rather than rising as new from the ashes, these husks remain preserved in decomposition, forcing viewers to confront the strange beauty of ruination.

mythology meme:  [1/4] locations
↳ xibalba

In the Popul Vuh, Xibalba is described as an underground city, mostly associated with death and the twelve Lords of Xibalba. The place itself was immense, housing the council seat of the Lords, the Xibalban ball-court, the halls of the Lords, several gardens, and at least six deadly houses of trials. The purpose of the latter was to humiliate and punish visitors unworthy of entering Xibalba proper. To even qualify to be tested in these trials, however, one would have to first cross three rivers: one of scorpions, one of blood, and one of pus. Then came the four-forked crossroads, and if one passed all the first tests, they would come to the Xibalba council seat. Only after a few further tests and humiliations would the visitor then be sent to the houses of trials.
