This is an image from a Chama-style piece of ceramics. It represents a gato de monte, some type of fox. There is a variety of fox-like creatures on Chama ceramics. It’s the Maya way of representing history: a ruling lineage called Fox. In the Classic Maya language named Ch’amak, from which Chama took its name. A beautiful rendering of what I have called a ‘lineage history


Esta es una imagen de una pieza de cerámica de estilo Chama. Representa un gato de monte. Hay una variedad de gatos de monte en la cerámica Chama. Es la manera maya de ilustrar historia: un linaje gobernante llamado Gato de Monte. En el idioma maya clásico llamado Ch'amak, del cual Chama deriva su nombre. Una fina expresión de mi metodología "historia de linaje"
