Kukulkán, the feathered snake-shaped Mayan creator god, descends through Chichen Itza Castle during the autumn equinox. Above the pyramid, the sun casts a set of lights and shadows that marks the arrival of the moment when day and night become the same again.
In Mexico, autumn is the time when the dead return to be honored by their loved ones. Autumn is the season that is filled with the beauty of memories. In this volume of LANDUUM, we want to celebrate the arrival of this station and honor the transformative power of time, inviting our readers to feel the human beating of the earth, to discover how culture generates landscapes and how they endure as part of the identity of those who live in them.
Within these pages we present places as unique as the people who inhabit them; beauty, color and tradition are mixed with the stories of those who decided to create these landscapes that transcend history.
