Batman...or Bat God? The Batman as a Mayan Deity Figure

This art project is all about merging the Batman motif with the traditional iconography of Mayan myth, specifically the iconography of Camazotz, the Death Bat of Quiche Mayan folklore (and earlier) and one of the key Xibalban demons of the Popol Vuh.

The Mexican Museum of Design with artist Kimbal is posting amazing pics....I have to say, I definitely approve of this look:

Methinks a carefully crafted Elseworlds tale could spring from this design....
