Chac mool
Chac-Mool is a relatively weird story from the ones we usually read. It starts off with the story of an average man trying to cope with his friends death. There is some mystery to his friends death, but one would think it could possibly be a car accident or a judgment call that led to his death. One would never expect that it would have to do with a South American legend-god. Chac-Mool is more of a myth than a story with a goal. Chac-Mool is a ancient artifact that is rare to find. “I found the Chac Mool in the junk shop to which Pepe directed me. It’s a precious piece, of natural dimension, and although the merchant insists on its originality, I doubt it”   The whole story revolves around two main themes; being taken away from your land and the fact that one has to die for his story to be believed. We know he was taken from his land when filbert wrote “Chac Mool can be nice when he wants to..., a glug-glug of delightful water... He knows fantastic stories about monsoons, equatorial rains, the punishment of the deserts; every plant derives from his mythic paternity”. First, the symbolism in the story comes in when the explanation of how the statue was procured is told. The statue was brought in from its natural habitat near a pond/lake.

Chac mool
Chac-Mool is a relatively weird story from the ones we usually read. It starts off with the story of an
average man trying to cope with his friends death. There is some mystery to his friends death, but
one would think it could possibly be a car accident or a judgment call that led to his death. One
would never expect that it would have to do with a South American legend-god. Chac-Mool is more
of a myth than a story with a goal. Chac-Mool is a ancient artifact that is rare to find. “I found the
Chac Mool in the junk shop to which Pepe directed me. It’s a precious piece, of natural dimension,
and although the merchant insists on its originality, I doubt it”
The whole story revolves around two main themes; being taken away from your land and the fact
that one has to die for his story to be believed. We know he was taken from his land when filbert
wrote “Chac Mool can be nice when he wants to..., a glug-glug of delightful water... He knows
fantastic stories about monsoons, equatorial rains, the punishment of the deserts; every plant
derives from his mythic paternity”. First, the symbolism in the story comes in when the explanation
of how the statue was procured is told. The statue was brought in from its natural habitat near a
pond/lake. That represents its homeland or where it feels the safest, they ripped away from their
which could either represent his aggressive behavior or could be symbolizing all the modern day
conflicts. A example is the ongoing conflict between Palestine and Israel, where Palestine was taken
its land away from it while Israel is depending on the upcoming generations to accept the current
situation. As a reply, Palestinians are using violence because that’s the only thing they can do.
The other theme is when the writer was saying that one has to die to get his story believed. No one
actually thought that the outcome of the story would actually be death. But when the writer
discovered that his friend had died he believed the story. But if his friend told him about it, even if he
trusted him he would have doubts. He knew that the chac Mool killed him when he opened the door
to filberts house and saw an Indian. “A yellow Indian appeared, in a house robe, with a scarf.”
To sum up, I think Chac-Mool is a very good story with deep meaning in both symbolism and trust.
It’s a story that can't be looked at only in face value, but has to be analyzed to be understood.
