(BRANDED WITH HOT IRON WORK)
Deep in the Southern part of Mexico, where the thick jungles are, lies the
State of Chiapas, a religious city that was governed by Pakal, King of Palenque..
This state is beautifully surrounded by mountains and rain
forest. Chiapas is a place where time has stopped and progress hasn't
touch a bit its beautiful Natural environment.
In those thick jungles lies Palenque,
which is, Till this day, an
archeological zone. Palenque was existent at the time of the Mayans.
He is now buried in the Temple of the Inscriptions,
which is the
biggest pyramid found there. His mother is buried in the
pyramid next to his.
The Art that you are about to see here
is done by branding hot iron on leather and then painting on them by hand.
The paintings on this leather represent images of Pakal;
Her Mother; the Queen and his son Chambalun in different events that were real
at the time. These paintings are presented in frescos in the different pyramids
that you can see in Palenque.
Each of the Branded leathers have
inscribed on the back side, the Name of
the painting and the signature or name of the author.
All these designs are replicas of frescos found in the different
pyramids of Palenque in Chiapas.
