I, the Exalted Rafael Pearl, Equal of Heaven, will travel to the American Museum of Natural History in New York, New York. Come along!
These are our ancestors... Very fuzzy! Sexy, are they not?
This poor fellow was stuffed far too young. He is orangutan and he is full of many feelings. Good and bad. Don't get too close!
This poor fellow was stuffed far too young. He is monkey. He is shaking with rage for he can smell that banana in my back pocket.
Mighty elephant, look at him stomp. Don't stand under him when he poops.
This thing is suspended from the ceiling! I hope it doesn't fall on me!
This guy seems really interesting. Maybe invite them out to coffee?
I feel overwhelmed with desire to draw some of these characters.
Oaxacan ceremony in Mexico. A Sky God is arriving for a dinner party?
A killer whale holding a human head. Early Nasca. I wonder what plans they have tonight?
A Karaja forest spirit from the Amazon Rainforest. Try not to poke your eye out!
The Zapotec God of Death from Mexico. Ahh! I think I saw it move!
Xipe Totec, or "The Flayed One". An Aztec God! He is wearing human skin over his skin. He is the god of fertility and spring...Not what I expected.
An unnamed god from the Zapotec in Mexico. He's... pretty corny!
Another Zapotec God! This one is a Bat God. Maybe a friend of Bruce Wayne?
A Zapotec Goddess wearing the Bat God's head. I wonder what they fought about?
Dude and Llama watching the Incan god of thunder and lightning. There are also smaller sky god attendants observing. Seems like a fun party!
