Paddler gods Maize god

If you use an Epson inkjet printer your images will fade quickly. Use a color laser instead and your color photographs will look much better (and will last for years).

Here is a detail from a rollout of a Maya vase in the Museo Popol Vuh. It shows the Maize God and one of the Paddler Gods. With details like this students and scholars can see all the original brushstrokes.

The images here are actually printed with a Tally T8204 color laser, then photographed with a Nikon CoolPix, then JPEGed so the will fit on the Internet. The original images are a thousand times nicer than the reproductions after being shrunk by JPEGing.

Here is another rollout, again, color laser prints posted on the wall and then photographed. The vase (dancing nagual alter ego personifications, way) was photographed in the Museo Popol Vuh. These are all direct digital rollouts using a BetterLight digital rollout system.

Where to get your Tally printer? e-mai He has Tally, QMS, HP, and all major brands (naturally we recommend the Tally but you may have other needs as well).
