A MYTHOLOGICAL PALACE.


Casa Kukulcan (House of Kukulcan) is a newly built house that was conceived as a temple to a creator god of the Mayan people.

Kukulcan was widely worshipped across the Mesoamerican world. He is a serpent in his natural form, but is also represented by a Caucasian man standing about 6 feet tall with long white hair.

He arose from the ocean and was responsible for teaching the Mayan people about civilization, agriculture and medicine. After a period on land, he returned to the ocean, promising to revisit.

The Mayan people may have perceived the arrival of Cortez and other Europeans, as the second coming. This feeling may have contributed to the defeat of the Mayan, Aztec and other cultures.


ARCHITECTURE.



Casa Kukulcan was designed by a famous architect. Central to his design is the inclusion of the mythological portals or gateways of Kukulcan.

The land portal is made up of ceremonial steps and an immense Mayan arch of over 5000 square feet fitted in hand shaped limestone.

As you move into the house, one passes similar huge processional pillars, then the vista opens to Kukulcan’s ocean portal. The ocean portal consists of a 20 feet high vaulted ceiling and window.

On both sides of the window are dual triple glass doors which fold into the walls to combine inside and outside elements.

Adjacent to the inside of the house begins the 50 foot long pool which reaches outside past the window towards the ocean. The Caribbean ocean and reef are in the background.
