And The Glories Of Author Dennis Tedlock – Chapter TLymph They had no sweat no fat Their complexions were dry their faces were crusty They flailed their legs and arms their bodies were deformedAnd so they accomplished nothing before the Maker Modeler who gave them birth gave them heart They became the first numerous people here on the face of the earthAgain there comes a humiliation destruction and demolition The manikins woodcarvings were killed when the Heart of Sky devised a flood for them A great flood was made it came down on the heads of the manikins woodcarvingsThe man s body was carved from the wood of the coral tree by the Maker Modeler And as for the woman the Maker Modeler needed the hearts of bulrushes for the woman s body They were not competent nor did they speak before the builder and sculptor who made them and brought them forth and so they were killed done in by a flood There came a rain of resin from the skyThere came the one named Gouger of Faces he gouged out their eyeballsThere came Sudden Bloodletter he snapped off their headsThere came Crunching Jaguar he ate their fleshThere came Tearing Jaguar he tore them openThey were pounded down to the bones and tendons smashed and pulverized even to the bones Their faces were smashed because they were incompetent before their mother and their father the Heart of Sky named Hurricane The earth was blackened because of this the black rainstorm began rain all day and rain all night Into their houses came the animals small and great Their faces were crushed by things of wood and stone Everything spoke their water jars their tortilla griddles their plates their cooking pots their dogs their grinding stones each and every thing crushed their faces Their dogs and turkeys told them You caused us pain you ate us but now it is you whom we shall eat And this is the grinding stone We were undone because of youEvery day every dayin the dark in the dawn foreverr r rip r r ripr r rub r r rubright in our faces because of youThis was the service we gave you at first when you were still people but today you will learn of our power We shall pound and we shall grind your flesh their grinding stones told themAnd this is what their dogs said when they spoke in their turn Why is it you can t seem to give us our food We just watch and you just keep us down and you throw us around You keep a stick ready when you eat just so you can hit us We don t talk so we ve received nothing from you How could you not have known You did know that we were wasting away there behind you So this very day you will taste the teeth in our mouths We shall eat you their dogs told them and their faces were crushedAnd then their tortilla griddles and cooking pots spoke to them in turn Pain That s all you ve done for us Our mouths are sooty our faces are sooty By setting us on the fire all the time you burn us Since we felt no pain you try it We shall burn you all their cooking pots said crushing their facesThe stones their hearthstones were shooting out coming right out of the fire going for their heads causing them pain Now they run for it helter skelterThey want to climb up on the houses but they fall as the houses collapseThey want to climb the trees they re thrown off by the treesThey want to get inside caves but the caves slam shut in their facesSuch was the scattering of the human work the human design The people were ground down overthrown The mouths and faces of all of them were destroyed and crushed And it used to be said that the monkeys in the forests today are a sign of this They were left as a sign because wood alone was used for their flesh by the builder and sculptorSo this is why monkeys look like people they are a sign of a previous human work human design mere manikins mere woodcarvingsThis was when there was just a trace of early dawn on the face of the earth there was no sun But there was one who magnified himself Seven Macaw is his name The sky earth was already there but the face of the sun moon was clouded over Even so it is said that his light provided a sign for the people who were flooded He was like a person of genius in his being I am great My place is now higher than that of the human work the human design I am their sun and I am their light and I am also their months So be it my light is great I am the walkway and I am the foothold of the people because my eyes are of metal My teeth just glitter with jewels and turuoise as well they stand out blue with stones like the face of the sky And this nose of mine shines white into the distance like the moon Since my nest is metal it lights up the face of the earth When I come forth before my nest I am like the sun and moon for those who are born in the light begotten in the light It must be so because my face reaches into the distance says Seven MacawIt is not true that he is the sun this Seven Macaw yet he magnifies himself his wings his metal But the scope of his face lies right around his own perch his face does not reach everywhere beneath the sky The faces of the sun moon and stars are not yet visible it has not yet dawnedAnd so Seven Macaw puffs himself up as the days and the months though the light of the sun and moon has not yet clarified He only wished for surpassing greatness This was when the flood was worked upon the manikins woodcarvingsAnd now we shall explain how Seven Macaw died when the people were vanuished done in by the mason and sculptorCopyright copy by Dennis TedlockCarlos Fuentes Popol Vuh is one of the great books about the creation of the world It

knower of everything whatever there is sky earth lake seaThis is the account here it is Now it still ripples now it still murmurs ripples it still sighs still hums and it is empty under the skyHere follow the first words the first elouence There is not yet one person one animal bird fish crab tree rock hollow canyon meadow forest Only the sky alone is there the face of the earth is not clear Only the sea alone is pooled under all the sky there is nothing whatever gathered together It is at rest not a single thing stirs It is held back kept at rest under the skyWhatever there is that might

Sovereign Plumed Serpent the Bearers Begetters are in the water a glittering light They are there they are enclosed in uetzal feathers in blue greenThus the name Plumed Serpent They are great knowers great thinkers in their very beingAnd of course there is the sky and there is also the Heart of Sky This is the name of the god as it is spokenAnd then came his word he came here to the Sovereign Plumed Serpent here in the blackness in the early dawn He spoke with the Sovereign Plumed Serpent and they talked then they thought then they worried They agreed with each other they joined their words their thoughts Then it was clear then they reached accord in the light and then humanity was clear when they conceived the growth the generation of trees of bushes and the growth of life of humankind in the blackness in the early dawn all because of the Heart of Sky named Hurricane Thunderbolt Hurricane comes first the second is Newborn Thunderbolt and the third is Sudden ThunderboltSo there were three of them as Heart of Sky who came to the Sovereign Plumed Serpent when the dawn of life was conceived How should the sowing be and the dawning Who is to be the provider nurturer Let it be this way think about it this water should be removed emptied out for the formation of the earth s own plate and platform then should come the sowing the dawning of the sky earth But there will be no high days and no bright praise for our work our design until the rise of the human work the human design they saidAnd then the earth arose because of them it was simply their word that brought it forth For the forming of the earth they said Earth It arose suddenly just like a cloud like a mist now forming unfolding Then the mountains were separated from the water all at once the great mountains came forth By their genius alone by their cutting edge alone they carried out the conception of the mountain plain whose face grew instant groves of cypress and pineAnd the Plumed Serpent was pleased with this It was good that you came Heart of Sky Hurricane and Newborn Thunderbolt Sudden Thunderbolt Our work our design will turn out well they saidAnd the earth was formed first the mountain plain The channels of water were separated their branches wound their ways among the mountains The waters were divided when the great mountains appearedSuch was the formation of the earth when it was brought forth by the Heart of Sky Heart of Earth as they are called since they were the first to think of it The sky was set apart and the earth was set apart in the midst of the watersSuch was their plan when they thought when they worried about the completion of their workNow they planned the animals of the mountains all the guardians of the forests creatures of the mountains the deer birds pumas jaguars serpents rattlesnakes fer de lances guardians of the bushesA Bearer Begetter speaks Why this pointless humming Why should there merely be rustling beneath the trees and bushes Indeed they had better have guardians the others replied As soon as they thought it and said it deer and birds came forthAnd then they gave out homes to the deer and birds You the deer sleep along the rivers in the canyons Be here in the meadows in the thickets in the forests multiply yourselves You will stand and walk on all fours they were toldSo then they established the nests of the birds small and great You precious birds your nests your houses are in the trees in the bushes Multiply there scatter there in the branches of trees the branches of bushes the deer and birds were toldWhen this deed had been done all of them had received a place to sleep and a place to stay So it is that the nests of the animals are on the earth given by the Bearer Begetter Now the

Popol Vuh The Definitive Edition Of The Mayan Book Of The Dawn Of Life And The Glories OfRangement of the deer and birds was completeAnd then the deer and birds were told by the Maker Modeler Bearer Begetter Talk speak out Don t moan don t cry out Please talk each to each within each kind within each group they were told the deer birds puma jaguar serpent Name now our names praise us We are your mother we are your father Speak now HurricaneNewborn Thunderbolt Sudden ThunderboltHeart of Sky Heart of EarthMaker ModelerBearer Begetter speak pray to us keep our days they were told But it didn t turn out that they spoke like people they just suawked they just chattered they just howled It wasn t apparent what language they spoke each one gave a different cry When the Maker Modeler heard this It hasn t turned out well they haven t spoken they said among themselves It hasn t turned out that our names have been named Since we are their mason and sculptor this will not do the Bearers and Begetters said among themselves So they told them You will simply have to be transformed Since it hasn t turned out well and you haven t spoken we have changed our word What you feed on what you eat the places where you sleep the places where you stay whatever is yours will remain in the canyons the forests Although it turned out that our days were not kept nor did you pray to us there may yet be strength in the keeper of days the giver of praise whom we have yet to make Just accept your service just let your flesh be eaten So be it this must be your service they were told when they were instructed the animals small and great on the face of the earthAnd then they wanted to test their timing again they wanted to experiment again and they wanted to prepare for the keeping of days again They had not heard their speech among the animals it did not come to fruition and it was not completeAnd so their flesh was brought low they served they were eaten they were killed the animals on the face of the earthAgain there comes an experiment with the human work the human design by the Maker Modeler Bearer Begetter It must simply be tried again The time for the planting and dawning is nearing For this we must make a provider and nurturer How else can we be invoked and remembered on the face of the earth We have already made our first try at our work and design but it turned out that they didn t keep our days nor did they glorify us So now let s try to make a giver of praise giver of respect provider nurturer they saidSo then comes the building and working with earth and mud They made a body but it didn t look good to them It was just separating just crumbling just loosening just softening just disintegrating and just dissolving Its head wouldn t turn either Its face was just lopsided its face was just twisted It couldn t look around It talked at first but senselessly It was uickly dissolving in the water It won t last the mason and sculptor said then It seems to be dwindling away so let it just dwindle It can t walk and it can t multiply so let it be merely a thought they saidSo then they dismantled again they brought down their work and design Again they talked What is there for us to make that would turn out well that would succeed in keeping our days and praying to us they said Then they planned again We ll just tell Xpiyacoc Xmucane Hunahpu Possum Hunahpu Coyote to try a counting of days a counting of lots the mason and sculptor said to themselves Then they invoked Xpiyacoc XmucaneThen comes the naming of those who are the midmost seers the Grandmother of Day Grandmother of Light as the Maker Modeler called them These are names of Xpiyacoc and XmucaneWhen Hurricane had spoken with the Sovereign Plumed Serpent they invoked the daykeepers diviners the midmost seers There is yet to find yet to discover how we are to model a person construct a person again a provider nurturer so that we are called upon and we are recognized our recompense is in

coral tree just get it done just let it come out whether we should carve and gouge a mouth a face in wood they told the daykeepersAnd then comes the borrowing the counting of days the hand is moved over the corn kernels over the coral seeds the days the lotsThen they spoke to them one of them a grandmother the other a grandfatherThis is the grandfather this is the master of the coral seeds Xpiyacoc is his nameAnd this is the grandmother the daykeeper diviner who stands behind others Xmucane is her nameAnd they said as they set out the days Just let it be found just let it be

planting the dawning You corn kernels you coral seedsyou days you lots may you succeed may you be accurate they said to the corn kernels coral seeds days lots Have shame you up there Heart of Sky attempt no deception before the mouth and face of Sovereign Plumed Serpent they said Then they spoke straight to the point It is well that there be your manikins woodcarvings talking speaking there on the face of the earth So be it they replied The moment they spoke it was done the manikins woodcarvings human in looks and human in speechThis was the peopling of the face of the earth They came into being they multiplied they had daughters they had sons these manikins woodcarvings But there was nothing in their hearts and nothing in their minds no memory of their mason and builder They just went and walked wherever they wanted Now they did not remember the Heart of SkyAnd so they fell just an experiment and just a cutout for humankind They were talking at first but their faces were dry They were not yet developed in the legs and arms They had no blood no.
