The many achievements of the ancient Egyptians include the quarrying, surveying and construction techniques that supported the building of monumental pyramids, temples, and obelisks; a system of mathematics, a practical and effective system of medicine, irrigation systems and agricultural production techniques, the first known planked boats, Egyptian faience and glass technology, new forms of literature, and the earliest known peace treaty, made with the Hittites. Egypt left a lasting legacy. Its art and architecture were widely copied, and its antiquities carried off to far corners of the world. Its monumental ruins have inspired the imaginations of travelers and writers for centuries. A new-found respect for antiquities and excavations in the early modern period by Europeans and Egyptians led to the scientific investigation of Egyptian civilization and a greater appreciation of its cultural legacy. 🗣💭❤️ Mesoamerica was a region and cultural area in the Americas, extending up there approximately from central Mexico to Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and northern Costa Rica, within which pre-Columbian societies flourished before the Spanish colonization of the Americas in the 15th and 16th centuries. It is one of six areas in the world where ancient civilization arose independently, and the second in the Americas along with Norte Chico (Caral-Supe) in present-day northern coastal Peru. Among the earliest complex civilizations was the Olmec culture, which inhabited the Gulf coast of Mexico and extended inland and southwards across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Frequent contact and cultural interchange between the early Olmec and other cultures in Chiapas, Guatemala and Oaxaca laid the basis for the Mesoamerican cultural area. All this was facilitated by considerable regional communications in ancient Mesoamerica, especially along the Pacific coast. 🗣💭❤️ #egyptians #mesoamerican

🇬🇧 Built by the pre-Columbian Maya civilization sometime between the 9th and 12th centuries, El Castillo served as a temple to Kukulkan, the Yucatec Maya Feathered Serpent deity closely related to the god Quetzalcoatl known to the Aztecs and other central Mexican cultures. El Castillo (The Castle), also known as the Temple of Kukulcan (or sometimes Kukulkan), is a Mesoamerican step-pyramid that dominates the center of the Chichen Itza archaeological site in the Mexican state of Yucatán. The pyramid consists of a series of square terraces with stairways up each of the four sides to the temple on top. Sculptures of plumed serpents run down the sides of the northern balustrade. Each of the pyramid's four sides has 91 steps which, when added together and including the temple platform on top as the final "step", produces a total of 365 steps (which is equal to the number of days of the Haab'year). Haab was a 365-day calendar used by many of the pre-Columbian cultures of Mesoamerica During the spring and autumn equinoxes, the late afternoon sun strikes off the northwest corner of the pyramid and casts a series of triangular shadows against the northwest balustrade, creating the illusion of a feathered serpent "crawling" down the pyramid.

Doesn't the Bible command "thou shalt not steal"?
Yet, those that claim to follow God, the ten commandments, and claim to be righteous know that their ancestors stolen the land through lies and war propaganda from our grandmothers.
That is the European way.
They made the original inhabitants so sick so that they couldn't recover, they hold paper titles to land the government stole and resold to Europeans only for pennies on the dollar, making their construction layered on Mexica blood and soil.
This is Our land and does not legally belong to land invaders from Europe because they stolen it through their white lies and war.
Jesus did not die for his followers to steal land, but yet they will stop at nothing to maintain their white power over the Earth. Reclaim the stolen lands by any means necessary.
The Europeans have no morals, and are no moral authority. #MesoAmerican

My next page from #theBestiary is focused on Quetzalcóatl, a Meso-American god with a monstrous appearance. 🐲

The Mayans called him Kukulcán, and he was also known as the Feathered Serpent. 🐉

He was one of the major deities of the ancient Mexican pantheon, and representations of his freakish form appear as early as the Teotihuacán civilisation. 🏜

Once the Toltec culture took over, however, Quetzalcóatl became a god of the morning and evening star, and his temple was the centre of ceremonial life in Tula. ⭐️ The Aztecs, on the other hand, turned Quetzalcóatl into a patron of priests, making him the inventor of the calendar & creator of books, protector of goldsmiths & craftsmen, and a symbol of death & resurrection associated with Venus. 💫

In fact, he was said to have descended to the underground hell of Mictlan with his dog-headed companion, Xolotl, to gather the bones of the ancient dead & anoint them with his blood, thus creating mankind. 💀

The dude clearly got around. And he wasn't as bad as Tlaloc, another major god whom the Aztecs feared so terribly, that sometimes they drowned their children to appease him. Parenting 101 right there... 👹
