Scarlet Macaw – The Great Ball Court of the Maya
From Copan, Honduras
Pen and Ink 16×20
Over a long weekend, I attempted what turned out to be a rather complex pen and ink drawing.
I wanted to recreate the sight of a scarlet macaw that flew past me as I stood admiring the ancient ball court of a great civilization. The tarp protects a delicately-carved stairway chockfull of hieroglyphics which had helped decode the Maya script. What an unforgettable moment that was!
