These are three of the Mayan Gods, The 9 banded armadillo is famous, I made quite a few trips in the 80's to Guatemala. The Armadillo would grow in size and the Mayan Chiefs would sit on him and discuss the moon, sun, heavens, and planting of corn, This was a favorite story of the children, if the Chiefs became arrogant, the Armadillo would buck them into the air! And they would crash to the ground! THIS armadillo has 2012 underneath and the Sun God with tongue out shooting fire onto the earth!! To see the 2012, you must hold to mirror. In Antigua, the city I studied Spanish in there are two volcanoes, Fire and Water, if I remember right and Fire is always smoking! Many earthquakes there, they lived in fear of the volcanoes, I think. I posted this months ago but did it again since it is close to the end!! It was nice knowing all of you at Collector's Weekly! So if the world ends I say goodbye now! If it goes on then I will buy more unusual treasures!
