Mayan message

Graffiti on a wall in Merida, Calle 51 near the corner of 52. Haven't seen anything like this here before. Beautiful, but do you wonder about what stirs under the polite surface of a culture with such long experience of plunder, enslavement and subjugation?  Ronald Wright's Time among the Maya was a great, although dated, exploration of the Mayan world and its modern context. Still, I am keen to learn more.
