Beauty is an experience, nothing else.
It is not a fixed pattern or an arrangement of features.
It is something felt, a glow or a communicated sense of fineness…
By: D.H.Laurence

The man had a fine, genuine and beautiful soul , we spoke for at least 2 hours on the side of a sidewalk, in a small town called Nayarit in the suburban of Nuevo Puerto Vallarta MX , we connected immediately, as if we had known each other for ever..rarely at first glimpse do I encounter natives that want to talk about their profound feelings about their land, their family history and ancestors origin’s, his where of “nahuatlaca” language speaking people of Pipils origin, their life, work, religion belief etc.

When ever I find a beautiful soul, there is a trail of beautiful memories left in my heart…

A little about his family origins:

Turning now to the native chronicles of the Mexican nations, these are found to be substantial dated records going back to the 12th or 13th century, with some vague but not worthless recollections of national events from times some centuries earlier. These last-mentioned traditions, in some measure borne out by linguistic evidence of names of places, tribes, and persons, point to the immigration of detachments or branches of a widespread race speaking a common language, which is represented to us by the Aztec, still a spoken language in Mexico. This language was called nahuatl, and one who spoke it as his native tongue was called nahuatlacatl, so that modern anthro-pologists are following native precedent when they use the term Nahua for the whole series of peoples now under consideration.1 Earliest of the Nahua nations, the Toltecs are traditionally related to have left their northern home of Huehuetlapallan in the 6th century; and, though this remote date cannot be treated as belonging to genuine history, there is other evidence of the real existence of the nation. Their name Toltecatl signifies an inhabitant of Tollan, “land of reeds,” a place which, as has been already pointed out, appears elsewhere in the national traditions of this region, and has a definite geographical site in the present Tulan or Tula, north of the valley of Anahuac, where a Toltec kingdom of some extent seems to have had its centre. To this nation is ascribed not only the oldest but the highest culture of the Nahua nations; to them was due the introduction of maize and cotton into Mexico, the skilful workmanship in gold and silver, the art of build-ing on a scale of vastness still witnessed to by the mound of Cholula, said to be Toltec work.

    Wonderful work Carole. I mean both the image and the description. The guy makes fantastic carvings. I believe I also could easily listen to him for hours. The capture is very well composed and the main thing it has a spirit. Compliments. :)

  • Thank you for your wonderful comments arvyart, this sculptor was a pretty amazing and sweet human being, I have to agree with you, if it had not been so darn hot on the sidewalk at 47 Celsius in the shade, with no water left in by bottle and that I had a 2 hours walk to go back to my hotel, I would of stayed all afternoon and would of continued listening to him all evening and probably would of invited him to dine with me…
