Fire Portal Pictogram Decoding

Chicago, Frida Larios, Graphic Design, New Maya Language
Shannon+Knut=FireWe love the pictogram at the top of our invite! Titled Shannon+Knut=Fire, it was designed especially for us by internationally acclaimed artist Frida Larios.  Frida’s ongoing project, New Maya Language, has won her numerous awards and features in books published by such prestigious houses as Taschen.
Our pictogram, like her other work, reinterprets classic Maya symbols. Ours combines the elements of K’AK’, which means “fire,” CH’UL, symbolizing “holy, sacred, divine,” and WAY, representing a portal or ceremonial center (in our case Gaia at Hacienda San Lucas, where the ceremony took place).
