The creation myth of the Popul Vuh, which Lattimore has drawn from the only surviving text, in 17th c Latin, itself a translation of the codices hidden by the Maya before encroaching Spaniards a hundred and fifty years before. The illustrations were inspired by the stonework of the Maya, and painted art. She combines her knowledge of archeology with the blue-grey stonelike figures and vivid colours of the forest to create a simple version of the usually embellished Popul Vuh.
