Storyboard Text

  • Before the world had a true form, there were two Gods,  Tepeu the maker and Gucumatz. Whatever they thought came to be
  • Mountains and valleys, pinetrees and water and sky.
  • They needed someone to worship and praise them, so they created animals
  • Tepeu and Gucumatz created women for them, and the reason why we have mistakes and limited eyesight, is because we aren't as good as the Gods.
  • But they could only roar, howl, bark, twitter or moan. So they created men out of clay, but they crumbled apart when they spoke.
  • So they made a second race of men. These men were carved from wood. They were able to walk and talk, but their minds were empty, so they could not praise them.
  • So they created a third race of men, made from corn. These men were great, because their minds were extraordinary, but too extraordinary, so they limited their eyesight.
