Beginning the Journey

Crossing of raging river with the help of a dog


This level shows the soul departing the earth, and traversing the threshold between life and death. This threshold is guarded by Quetzalcoatl and Mitclantecuitli, the Lords of Life and Death.

In this level, a calavera exits his grave, beginning his journey by crossing a raging river with the aid of (Xolotl) a white dog. This dog accompanies the soul through the levels of the Underworld to the Land of the Dead. Links from this page will reflect the raging river of our current water crisis;,, and others.
