2012: Mayan Godspell Revisited

As Lord Pakal Ahau grows older waiting for the culmination of 2012 and the termination of the final Mayan Prophecy we made this 3D photorealistic portrait reconstruction based on an interesting old photo.

Our surprise came when he showed us a picture of him in the cast of the musical Godspell wearing an interesting makeup in his right eye.  A red tear.  That was the year 1975 when he was part of the Spanish cast of the Broadway musical. He still remembers the Spanish lyrics of many of the songs and we have included the song Save The People in English and few verses he remembers in Spanish of the song with our final image.

We wonder if this event was part of the powerful Mayan prophecy in his adolescent life and the New Mesoamerican Mythology he decided to create years later. The song below probably says alot of many things, good and bad, coming in 2012.

“Save The People” (by Stephen Schwartz and John Michael Tebelak)

When wilt thou save the people?
Oh God of mercy, when?
Not kings and lords, but nations,
Not thrones and crowns, but men!
Flow’rs of thy heart, o God, are they;
Let them not pass, like weeds, away,
Their heritage a sunless day.
God save the people.

Shall crime bring crime forever,
Strength aiding still the strong?
Is it thy will, o Father,
That men shall toil for wrong?
“No”, say thy mountains;
“No”, say thy skies;
Man’s clouded sun shall brightly rise,
And songs be heard instead of sighs.
God save the people.

When wilt thou save the people?
Oh God of mercy when?
The people, Lord, the people,
Not thrones and crowns, but men!
God save the people, for thine they are,
Thy children as thy angels fair.
God save the people from despair.
God save the people.
Oh God save the people!
God save the people!
Oh God save the people!
God save the people.
Oh God save the people!
God save the people!
Oh God save the people!

When wilt thou save the people?
O God of mercy when?
The people, Lord, the people,
Not thrones and crowns, but men!
God save the people, save us,
For thine they are, for thine they are.
Thy children as thy angels fair:
O, God save the people,
Save the people,
God save the people,
From despair.
God save the people!

God save the people,
O, God save the people,
God save the people,
O, God save the people,
God save the people,
God save the people,
God save the people.

“Salva Tu Pueblo” (Letra en Español por Levi Russell)

Vas a salvar tu pueblo
Cuando lo harás, Señor
Al pueblo, Dios al pueblo
No a tronos, ni al poder.

Salva tu pueblo
de tu redil
que duda de tu creación
Sálvanos, salva tu pueblo.

El crimen que hará el crimen
La fuerza opresión
O es que prefieres Padre
a un hombre malhechor.

No, dice el cielo
No, dice el mar
Las nubes se habrán
de ocultar.

Y todo así, perecerá
Salva tu pueblo.

Sálvanos, sálvanos
salva tu pueblo.
