Jugador de pelota maya
Mayan history is a complex and involved and I don't want to get into the retelling of it here. Their art,especially their sculpture, however is extraordinary especially, I think, the figures from Jaina Island --such as this ball player (right).
One of the delights when visiting Melbourne is the collection of pre-columbian art at the NGV.
But I live so far to the north can't do that so often. So I make do.
We wont get into ball game rituals or other pre-columbian lifestyles but their art,especially their ceramic sculptures -- well, it belonged to another world --  a new world.
