Vj Loop / Sun's Pyramid

La Piramide del Sol (Sun's Pyramid) is located in Teotihuacan, in the Valley of Mexico. Along with the Moon's Pyramid it's the highest monument from the Avenue of the Dead, a complex with multi-family residential compounds and the place where gods were believed to be born. Growing up two hours away from Teotihuacan (birthplace of gods) we would occasionally go and climb all the way to the top. This was a place of influence to Aztec, Maya and most cultures of Central America. At one point it was the biggest city of the pre-Columbian Americas and can be found all over ancient literature. I reconstructed this Sun Pyramid in Maya, a 3D software, taking into consideration its real measurements and the accounts of what would it look like since in actual times you cannot longer see the top shrine room. This is a vj loop with some of the process screen shots and a view of the final rendering. Enjoy!
