Pakl the Great was a ruler of the Maya city-state of Palenk.
Pakl is often referred to as the “Mayan Astronaut” because of a depiction on the lid of his sarcophagus that shows him surrounded by celestial objects, inside a rocket ship.
However I feel there is a secret message, one that no one has ever reported seeing before.
This video is a visual representation of what it is, how it can be viewed and how I have interpreted its meaning.
Once the image was revealed to me, I created the artwork you are seeing>
I used my intuition, combined by the feeling that at times, I was completing a paint by numbers exercise of my childhood years.
There are some iconic images that appear in this vision:
First is the owl:
In many Native American traditions, the owl is believed to have a deep understanding of the mysteries of the universe and is seen as a guardian of sacred knowledge. The owl was also believed to be a messenger between the human world and the world of the dead.
In Mayan religion, the bat is often associated with the underworld, death, and rebirth. The Mayan people believed that the bat had the ability to navigate through the darkness of the underworld and was therefore able to guide the souls of the dead on their journey to the afterlife.
A feathered dragon like serpent or Kakulkan:
Kukulkan was the god of wind and storms, and was also associated with wisdom, learning, and agriculture. Believed to be a benevolent deity who brought rain and agricultural abundance to the world. Kukulkan was responsible for the creation of the world, and played a central role in the establishment of human civilization.
The jaguar was considered to be a creature of the underworld.
The animal was often depicted in scenes of death and transformation, a guide to the afterlife with the ability to communicate with the spirits of the dead.
Its depiction was also used to represent the strength and power of the Mayan rulers and elite warriors.
One of the most prominent meanings associated with the snake is its role as a symbol of rebirth and transformation. The snake sheds its skin and emerges renewed, a process that was seen as a metaphor for death and rebirth.
There are other mysterious references such as elephants, Inca symbols and skulls that lay on the base of the artwork, reached by a bean of light.
Finally in the base of the artwork an alien like presence that is the catalyst to all of the appearances above.
The main visual is Pakl himself.
He poses as if to convey a message of authority and wisdom, one that inspire reverence and respect in. The ruler appears to be in a state of meditation presenting himself as an expression of spiritual power, enlightenment and conveyed a sense serenity, and transcendence. A spiritual guide in the tradition on Enlil of the Assyrian pantheon, or as a Prometheus of the Greek tradition.
The same spirt in different manifestations.
