Day 12 of #inktober Shattered // Tepēyōllōtl (Aztec) / He is the Aztec God of Earthquakes, Echoes and Jaguars. His name means 'Heart of the Mountains'. Jaguars, in Mesopotamian culture, were highly revered and respected creatures. They were often the symbol of elite warriors, royalty, and the shaman. Forms deity to bear a jagaur form is a sign of great respect and strength. It is said that he had a quick temper and whenever he raised his voice the Earth would shake. #inktober2017 #illustration #illustratorsofinstagram #myth #mythology #shattered #shatter #tepeyollotl #earthquake #godofearthquakes #earth #aztec #mesopotamia #aztecmythology #penandink #instaart #artist #artistsoninstagram

Day 9 (and my last real day in Aotearoa) brought me to the Bridge to Nowhere built in 1937. A fascinating story of settlers in the 1920's who were given land by the government for fighting in WWII... but let's be honest the land can never be given... and let's remember the ancestral significance of this valley to indigenous people. Still a very amazing journey! Trekking through mud and landslips shows how much work went into creating a homestead and a bridge in such amazing terrain. Mud so thick it ripped the sole off my shoe 😅 Grateful for the land and it's teachings and the awesome company on a day and half journey to Nowhere (but everywhere.) #bridgetonowhere #trekking #Aotearoa #mniwiconi #newzealand #mangapurua #mniwiconi #waterislife #aguaesvida #mountains #tepeyollotl #heartofthemountain
Day 8 brought me to Mangapurua valley. This was the closest I felt to my grandmother since her passing. Contemplating where she grew up in Mexico, out in the mountains, leaving pulled at my heart. One of the strongest feelings of home I've had in a very long time. Definitely nostalgic and missing this land, not to mention the total feeling of disorientation when looking up at the stars and not recognizing a single constellation! Beautiful beyond measure. What a way to wake up! #Mangapurua #mangapuruavalley #wananguinationalpark #mountain #tepeyollotl #heartofthemountain #purification #trekking #sacredland #healing #nature #naturalist #travellife #nostalgia #cobwebs
Can I tell you about Universal Flow y'all? I am forever grateful for the good hearts I've had the honor of meeting. I found myself heading to the Bridge to Nowhere. No idea how to get there but knowing that I would. In good Universal fashion I was able to connect with fellow water protector @marcuslloyd7 who just so happened to be heading the same way. Matawhero has been on a water walk the last 10 weeks, moving from water to water, praying for her and bring awareness to the path. It was an an absolute honor to be able to join him for part of his walk. I would not have found my way in the the Bush or to the bridge if it hadn't been for him. On the way we also met a really wonderful man, Kevin Brown who has lived his entire life on the land. His kindness got us out of the Bush in time for me to make it back to Auckland. He shared his knowledge, invited us to tea and showed us Hunter hospitality. Water protectors and non water protectors, make sure to follow @marcuslloyd7 journey as he continues to walk for the water!

"Te hā o taku maunga, ko taku manawa." The breath of my mountain is my heart. In my culture, Tepeyollohtli, the path to the heart of the mountain. #tepeyollotl #tongariro #newzealand #aotearoa #travel #trekking #travellife #adventure #nature
