Hi, all I've been pouring over selected parts of the text of Susan Milbrath's book again. I'm using the electronic edition this time which I think is an earlier edition than my paper copy, but it is free from Academia.edu and it's very convenient just to be able to mark up an electronic copy for future reference. I was particularly interested into going back to some of the materials on rain

Well, OF COURSE! You didn't think such a chintzy B-grade movie as "Attack of the Pretzel Snakes" wasn't going to have an even chintzier sequel hot on it's heels, did you? ;-) This the rest of the "Pretzel Snake" specimens currently in my collection, except I think there is another brown (pretzel) "Cigar Snake" on page 88 of the Codex Nuttall.

Here's a couple more items that may be of interest. There seem to be a few places in the Mexican Codices where similar versions of symbols seem to be clustered together, as if perhaps they are showing different forms these symbols might take? Here are several notable examples of this This is from page 21 of the Codex Zouche-Nuttall This is from page 8 of one of the Becker Codices (Becke

In case anyone hasn't gotten enough Mayan Butt Humor for one day (it's a dirty job but anthropologists have to talk about these things), the kindergarten class has voted, and the drawing of someone taking a spear to the arse was seven times funnier than the two shots of people being rooted the ground by roots growing out of their arses).

Hi, all This is mostly for Glass Jigsaw, but if anyone else gets anything out of it, better still. I know, I know... I've endlessly ridiculed scholars for insinuating that depictions of babies with the were-jaguar lip feature are undergoing shamanic transformations into bloodthirsty cannibal creatures that for adults require unhealthy doses of ritual hallucinogens.

Hi, all I'm just one of those who won't be content until they're burnt at the stake by their fellow heretics, I guess. Here we have such a wonderful collection of people who are so knowledgeable about ancient lore and constellations, and yet to be honest I would have to report quite a bit of frustration in trying to find references to constellations in ancient Mayan art. To me it seems m

This is a Mayan vase with the Kerr Collection number K8524 I know nothing about the provenance of this artifact, and have been unable to find additional references to it anywhere on the Internet using the Kerr Collection number for searches.

Hi, Orestes Many thanks for an absolutely fascinating thread. I noted your post the other day and have been meaning to get back to it, and now I have to catch up with a whole thread. If I understood the gist of your general direction, though, I think we may have some solidarity. I also saw some bits of conversation that remind me of some of the struggles I'm going through, where the accu

Hi, all I'm still not sure what I think these are personally. I'd be happy to believe they show latitude and longitude as on a globe but they seem pretty variable numerically and might be divided into 6, 8 or more sections radially, and may also have varying counts of concentric rings. For what it's worth though, there might be some more clues. Here is the first collection again T

Hi, all I recently stumbled over this curious fact about lunar occultations of planets in an article that I think was authored by one of Jean Meeus' colleages? - apparently the moon can cast a shadow while it's getting between the earth and a planet. Here, Venus appears as a baby crescent moon. https://www.farmersalmanac.com/venus-moon-occultation-128528 Imagine what it's going to do a
