Photo of The Day: Mayan life and death mask

This Mayan mask represents birth and death as part of a never ending cicle of human evolution through life and the afterlife as it was understood by the Mayas. Death was followed by lavish preparations for the next life after passing through Xibalba, Mayan Underworld.
