Posted by Mckenzie Mullen on

 Hi friends!

I'm currently sitting by our air conditioner as another thunderstorm is rolling in and it's humid as all heck.

In case you missed my inspiration, Kulkulkan, located at Chichén Itzá in Yucatàn, Mexico is the largest of the Mayan pyramids. The pyramid was built as a calendar; each of its four sides includes 91 steps which lead to a final shared platform at the very top, combined steps totalling 365. “Kulkulkan” also represents the Mayan deity, a feathered serpent whose mythos exists under many names all across Latin America.

On the Spring and Autumn equinoxes, the ingenuity of the Mayan architects gathers large crowds....
