I collect Maya and other ancient American artifact replicas, especially those related to Book of Mormon archaeology, and have created this blogspot to show off some of my collection. I hope my collection may give pleasure to more than myself through sharing. I have also traveled a number of times to the ancient ruins of the Maya Civilization, and will share some of my experiences and insights on this blog, as well as some articles that I have written for publication elsewhere.

Above are recent additions to my artifact replica collection: a maquete of a Maya warrior king, a 10" Pakal of Palenque obsidian mask, a bronze Incan mask, my clay 'artistic' version of the Aztec calendar, a stylized verzion of the Maya calendar, Izapa Stela 5, and a 42" long Aztec macana that I am making using obsidian blades crafted by a local master knapper. I will show the macana in its final form when it is finished. Hope you enjoy!
