Popol Vuh, the Quiché Mayan book of creation, is not only the most important text in the native languages of the Americas, it is also an extraordinary document of the human imagination. It begins with the deeds of Mayan gods in the darkness of a primeval sea and ends with the radiant splendor of the Mayan lords who founded the Quiché kingdom in the Guatemalan highlands. Originally written in Mayan hieroglyphs, it was transcribed into the Roman alphabet in the sixteenth century. This new edition of Dennis Tedlock's unabridged, widely praised translation includes new notes and commentary, newly translated passages, newly deciphered hieroglyphs, and over forty new illustrations.… (more)

Both biblical and atmospheric verse in a great creation/origin story. I now get the references to Xibalba in Aronofsky's underappreciated film "The Fountain". ( )

Dedication
First words
The first four humans, the first four earthly beings who were truly articulate when they moved their feet and hands, their faces and mouths, and who could speak the very language of the gods, could also see everything under the sky and on the earth.
Quotations
He who makes an enemy of the Earth makes an enemy of his own body.
- (Preface: P.14)
Now it still ripples, now it still murmurs, ripples, it still sighs, still hums, and it is empty under the sky.

Book description
Mayaintiaanien kansalliseepos. Popol Vuh, Yhteisön kirja, on mayaintiaaneihin kuuluvan quiche-kansan pyhä kirja. Se on legendakokoelma, joka avaa oven kadonneeseen suurkulttuuriin ja sen myyttien aikaan. Espanjalaiset tuhosivat pyhän kirjan alkuperäisversion 1500-luvulla, mutta quichet merkitsivät teoksen uudelleen muistiin suullisen traditionsa, hieroglyfien ja maalausten pohjalta. Nykyään se on mayojen jälkeläisille tärkeä osa identiteettiä. Popol Vuh sisältää tarinoita maailman ja ihmisen luomisesta, jumalpoikien seikkailusta, hyvän ja pahan ikuisesta taistelusta. Kirja on avain mayojen kadonneeseen kulttuuriin, kuten myös intiaaninäkökulma teologisiin peruskysymyksiin. Se on kulttuuristen arvojensa lisäksi jännittävä seikkailukokoelma, jossa pahat saavat palkkansa monien veristen ja vaiherikkaiden käänteiden jälkeen. Popol Vuh kertoo myös mayojen profetiasta, jonka mukaan maailma syntyy uudelleen 21.12.2012 talvipäivänseisauksen aikoihin. Uudessa painoksessa on maya-asiantuntija Harri Kettusen esipuhe. Kirja on kuvitettu Kettusen piirtämillä mayahieroglyfeillä. Didrichsenin taidemuseossa on syksyllä 2012 suuri mayanäyttely.
