Hunab Ku

Mixed Media & Acrylics. 

The symbol is called “the Galactic Butterfly”
which is said to represent all of
the consciousness that has ever existed
in this galaxy.

This is all of our physical ancestors,
human, animal, reptile, fish, shell fish, plants as well
as the consciousness which organized all of the raw material from a whirling disk into stars, planets and solar systems.

Big Meaning. So big that the original Maya had no symbol for this. In their civilization it was like
having no name for God. Just knowing the concept was good enough. Later this pattern
was devised by Toltec or Zapatec weavers as a pattern for blankets and this is where Jose Arguelles
came across it.

He called it Hunab Ku. The indigenous peoples call it “The Galactic Butterfly”. Butterflies are seen
as ancestors returning for a visit to physicality. Wearing one of these symbols is very powerful as it broadcasts your reaching to actively join the consciousness of our galaxy.

Sea Lion Woman

Sea Lion Woman embodies the element of Water. She is the Water Guardian.
Water is one of the most universal signs throughout the world. Although it varies from culture to culture, water is usually connected to emotions, feelings, intuition, psychic perceptions, and the subconscious mind. Water can also represent fertility, as the Spring rains bring life to the land. Water can also represent new creative potential.
And, let us not forget, water is life.
