His interpretation of what Montejo calls the “literary gem of the indigenous people of Guatemala."

 

In his interpretation of what Montejo calls the “literary gem of the indigenous people of Guatemala,” we read about how the world was created, about Wuqub’K’aqix (Seven Macaws) and his arrogant sons, about the amazing twins and their battles against the Underworld Lords of Xib’alb’a, about the creation of humans from corn and the gift of fire and the founding of the tribes—and much more. There are gods of vengeance and gods of compassion, giants, humans, and creatures and jungles full of wonder. Garay’s paintings, rich in color and detail, are perfect for this accessible epic story.
