El pozo de la Diosa IxChel by Magolobo El pozo de la Diosa IxChel by Magolobo

“The Goddess’s Pool”

Gift dedicated to Melissa “Frisket” :iconfrisket17:
Her character Sutra is in a Cenote, or Sacred Pool. For Mayan people those places were Gates between Underworld and Earth; and if somebody enters there eventually will meet the gods. Everything like people, tributes, sacrifices, etc. :damphyr:
The woman is IxChel “the white,” is the Goddess of the moon, healing, childbirth, love and Queen of the Mayan gods, and also wife of the powerful God Itzamná. Sometimes a rabbit was near her.
A kind Goddess who protects pregnant women; the snake on her forehead is a symbol of medicine. Ix in Mayan means the feminine, whether Lady, goddess, or woman. Ix is also meant to convey something high, important, or honoured. Chel means rainbow, or translucent light.
On the Mayan culture the butterflies are warriors spirits reincarnated. B-)

The original sketch & grayscale version comes in my :star: Sketchbook V1! :star:: [link]

"El pozo de la Diosa IxChel"

Imagen dedicada a mi amiga Melissa “Frisket”. :iconfrisket17:
Admito es una inusual mezcla de Antro y mitología maya.

Sutra (su personaje) se encuentra en el interior de un cenote, ó pozo sagrado; para los mayas éstos lugares eran portales que conectaban el mundo divino e inframundo con el de los mortales. Los sacrificios ó tributos que eran arrojados en éste lugar llegarían eventualmente a los Dioses. :damphyr:
La figura elevada es IxChel la Diosa de la Luna, medicina, gestación, amor, y Reina de los dioses mayas.
Ella tenía un lado amable, y era adorada porque protegía a los tejedores
y a las mujeres durante el parto, aunque si se enojaba podría provocar inundaciones. Su esposo era el poderoso Dios Itzamná, algunas veces la acompañaba un conejo.
En la cultura Maya las mariposas representan a espíritus de guerreros reencarnados.
B-)
PD.: Sé que no hay grabados en los cenotes pero era un detalle que me agradó. :D

El boceto original y una versión en escala de grises viene en mi pequeño :star: Sketchbook V1 :star:: [link]

~Magolobo doesn't only draw Anthropomorphic creatures: He's a variegated and talented artist, skilled enough to take the challenge and draw vehicles, traditional art, digital, and still spend his time creating tutorials and references for new artists. With "El pozo de la Diosa IxChel" he shares with us a piece with both anthro and human characters, plusthe beautiful colors he adds to all his pictures. To blend both styles, in such a nice and pleasant image, is something deserving a look... ( Featured by skifi )
