2012 Mayan Worker Glyph

This Maya glyph is one of our favorite inscriptions, in which the Maya carvers pay a tribute to Maya workers. This fact is very rare in the corpus of Maya glyphs.

The meaning of the glyph is also very ironic as the inscription shows an old Maya worker embracing the death mask of Xkichmook, the mathematical thinking of the divinity. It seems like the scribes thought about this glyph with a particular meaning, ‘to work in life until you die’.

Well, nothing has changed since these ancient years. We live for only one purpose. To advance cultural societies and become productive, paying taxes as a living unit (with a number as identity) and becoming old without credit or recognition until we die. The Maya glyph says it all and better than a thousand words.
