Description This sepia tone print is a picture of the steep steps of the Kukulkan Pyramid in the center of the Chichen Itza complex found in the middle of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. The complex is a series of Mayan ruins and has become a huge tourist attraction. What makes this picture a little unique is the foot traffic going up the side of the pyramid. The steps are narrow and steep. Going up isn't too bad, coming down is the challenge. The pyramid is now closed to foot traffic and has been for a number of years. I would assume accidents and mishaps forced the restriction. Having done the climb myself, I would attest to the ease of potential mishaps.
Kirt Tisdale, Everett, Washington Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
