Personalized Artworks

A wide range of intriguing images and “statements” can be presented through the use of Mayan hieroglyphics and mythological symbolism.

Imagery can be quite simple in concept, such as a hieroglyphic portrait of any given day such as a birthday or anniversary. And, as this is a fully developed (and highly intriguing) language, fuller statements can also be created.

This type of imagery can be used to express or illustrate:

– birth statements (as illustrations of the energy in place on the day of one’s birth)
– birth announcements, when a child is born
– relationships between people (romantic, family, career oriented, etc.)
– geneological connections
– anniversaries and commemorations, including “New Fire”
– special dates such as weddings or christenings
– special dates associated with special achievements
– and many other things

A few examples are shown below. Please contact us for further information, special orders, and pricing.
