Infinito Tile



Is an affirmation of Maya tradition translated into something new, a variation of the  Muk Ta Luch or the Universe Design, 

In the "Universe" Design, the path of the sun across the sky is shown by a thin line connecting the small diamonds of the east and west to a larger central diamond. This inner diamond has curls on each side that represent wings; called pepen, "butterfly", it is the weavers´ symbol for the day sun. The butterfly is a metaphor for the sun because, like the sun, it inhabits the Underworld when day turns to night Butterflies as well as fruit bats dwell in caves -portals to the Underworld- and they feed on the same flowers. In the waning light of dusk you may see a butterfly fluttering among the bushes at the edge of the cornfields, and then suddenly see a bat flying away from the same spot.
