Re: La Ceiba


This is a ceiba tree. The Mayans thought of this tree as their "tree of life" or "world tree". I remember seeing a huge ceiba tree growing above the jungle in the Chiapas. It was surreal and excellent.

Okay I added possibly bigger pictures....

sorry it isn't a TACO TREE!!! Okay, now that is out of my system. Here they are:

This is one of the few shirts on here right now that I could even remotely think about wearing in my part of Southern Arizona - an attractive design that nods to Mexican culture without making me look like I'm "picking sides" in our ridiculous ethnic/political climate. Plus I love monkeys. :D

I really like this design! Just out of curiosity what are the black spots by the bottom of the tree?

those are ants, they aren't super detailed, just silhouettes that suggest ants. I'm glad you like it!

yay! I also had a taco idea, but it wasn't up to par with the other food designs... taco rainbows just aren't meant to be.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to father time.
