Day signs

 

In pre-Columbian mesoamerica, the grasshopper was a symbol for duality. (grasshopper good, locust bad) In the tension between those two opposites, the need for communication arises. The song of the insect is its message. The symbols are the Aztec “day signs”, used to describe world energies and mark the passage of time.
