The Ancient Maya Batman

To mark the 75th anniversary of the birth of Batman, the Mexican division of Warner Home Entertainment and the Mexican Museum of Design gave plain white plastic busts of Batman to 30 Mexican artists. They encouraged the artists to do whatever they wanted with them.

One of the artists, Kimbal, responded with this Pre-Columbian Batman inspired by Maya art and mythology. Appropriately, it references Camazotz, a Maya god that looked like a vampire bat.

In the current DC continuity, Batman has appeared in paleolithic Gotham, 17th Century Gotham, and the Old West. Perhaps DC should make a comic about Batman in Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica.
