about

Chaac was the ancient Maya god of rain and lightning. He was one of the earliest and most worshipped gods among the all the people
of mesoamerica. Chaac was often depicted with a serpentine axe in his hand a metaphor for lightning, and his body was scaled and
reptilian. He was worshipped at sacred wells or cenotes, and was associated with the life giving rain needed for agriculture. At
the dawn of time Chaac split apart a sacred stone with his axe, from which sprung the first ear of maize. When he was not among the clouds the god could be found near falling waters


Special thanks to musician, Joseph Artell for suggestions on creating the ambience of this composition.
