But what is the meaning of the symbolism of this tree?
The tree of life or tree of life (Hebrew: עץ החיים; Etz haChayim) is mentioned in the Bible Book of Genesis in verse 2: 9 as the tree that was planted by God together with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden (Paradise) and whose fruits give eternal life (immortality).
The Maya believed in heaven, which they saw as a beautiful, magical place on Earth hidden by a mystical mountain. They called this place Tamoanchan. Heaven, earth and underworld (Xibalba) were connected by the 'world tree'. The world tree grew through creation, all things that flowed from this place grew in four directions. These were: East linked to red, North represented by white, West represented by black and South by yellow. The Maya tree of life is a cross, the center is seen as the point of 'the absolute beginning', the source of all creation. Its branches pass through each of the three layers of existence.
