About The Mayan Portal

The Mayan Portal by Shadow Puppet Productions was built in 2012. Mayan prophecy predicted 2012 as the end of the world as other worlds would collide with ours. Luckily for us this did not unfold! Mayans were early astronomers and mathematicians. They believed portals existed where the human soul could enter a mythical underworld and connect to spiritual dimensions. Shadow Puppet Productions is a group of largely self-taught artists from Vancouver, BC. Their backgrounds include chemistry, illustration, theatre, photography, dance, tattooing and fashion design.
