Huracan- recreation of the God of Fierce Wind from the Mayan Culture:
Huracan once again provided the transportation during the annual intrepid Expedition beyond the default world. Art unfolded at every twist and turn as the Mind Shaft Society explored the nuances among the dust particles. Embarkation was at the Bureau of Artistic Development where Creative License was granted. Debarkation was at the Trauma Unit, our minds and bodies having been fully blown.
