In Mayan legend, as long as the beautiful colors of the quetzals flashed across the jungle canopy, the Mayan culture would never die. The Mayan culture, like the Egyptian culture at its height, is not be confused with the degenerate end of those civilizations when human sacrifices were common. The magic and knowledge of the Mayans was as high as any that has existed on earth. In this drawing, you see a young guardian with her three young Quetzals insuring the continuation of the Mayan magic.--Michael Parkes
