Hunh? I don´t understand. I was responding to Pinguin who cuts and pastes photos etc., I thought this was allowed and have seen other posts with it and actually I really love to read the posts that have the photos and all. ´I didn´t realize it was prohibited. Sorry. I myself rather like looking in here at the posts that do have cut and paste as my time is limited on a public computer and I can get right to the meat.

T-shaped trees delineate compass points: east at the top, west on the bottom, north on the left, and south on the right. The four directions are distributed around a sacred center, shown here as Xiuhtecuhlti, the god of fire.
"(a)The center; (b)the four world trees; (c)the body of Tezcatlipoca, the creator God (his dismembered parts - spine, head, foot, and hand - are seen at the interstices of the four quadrants); and (d)circular cartouches of year signs set on the framing Maltese Cross."
