I just saw the movie apocalypto and was alittle awestruck at some of the depictions of the mayan city and inhabitants. If Mel Gibson was correct in depicting the way mayans adorned themselves then the mayans must have had a very modern almost futuristic sense of style. Everything from the geometric facial markings to the nose hoods looks like something out of a scifi movie.
Color must have played a very important aspect of their society it seems.
Does anyone have any links to any information regarding the significance of mayan adornments?
