913 Maya Voice                                            

In order for the Mayas of the River Valley to  record data of all astronomical, calendrical and ritualistic importance, they developed a hieroglyphic script noted for its complexity and aesthetic refinement.  At the center of their belief system was a perception of reality within time,, space, and the supernatural realm. 

Inherent in the symbolic system there were hidden meanings which unfold only as one recovers the sounds of the early Maya voice.
