Raising the Sky is a meditation on Genesis as told in the ancient Maya epic myth, Popol Vuh. I wanted to evoke the moment of primordial differentiation, in which Space, Movement, Light, Water, Earth, and Life are still in the generative moment of brilliant will and intelligence. The Trinity of Heart of Sky/ Heart of Earth/ Hurakan confer with Lord Plumed Serpent (Kukulkan) to evoke the creation. The Waters are separated from the Sky, and the Earth emerges, resplendent with green.
