Background: relief from the ruins of the 7th century Mayan city of Palenque (Mexico). The tattoo on her hand is the Hunab Ku, the symbol for the Mayans' supreme God and ultimate Creator who was believed to be located in the center of the Milky Way galaxy, and who gave birth to Sun and Earth, as well as the other planets found in our Solar System. It also represents the gateway to other galaxies beyond our Sun as well as all of the consciousness in our own galaxy, the Mother Womb which is constantly giving birth to new stars and directing everything that happens in our galaxy.

Watercolor, acrylic & ink on Bristol, 11x14". Details: www.mariawilliam.net/basketwea…

Beautiful work, I love how the tattoo does actually look real, with a greenish hue and a shine, not as if it's just been stuck on, this is brilliant

Lovely, Maria.  There certainly is beauty in a well-woven basket.  

My canoeing stuff travels about in an Adirondack pack basket by www.adirondackpackbaskets.com/  It's an amazingly comfortable thing as it nestles into the small of my back.

But I suspect your basket weaver is the prettier. :heart:
