Myths & Legends

and other indigenous cultures of Colombia
About El Dorado
'El Dorado Myths & Legends' is a visual compilation of the mythical stories of Muisca and other indigenous cultures of Colombia. As a comic book, it shares their perspective, their unique attributes, beauty, intensity, and creativity.
The Muisca - and other Colombian indigenous cultures - did not develop writing (even though they created and utilized diverse signs and visual systems).
What we know today comes from books and historical texts, written and extracted from three main sources: oral tradition; letters and documents written by the Spanish conquerors that have outlasted the centuries; and books written by experts, sociologists, anthropologists, and other researchers.
For the first time ever, they have been compiled and illustrated as a comic book:
'El Dorado Myths & Legends'.
DAWN OF TIME
At the beginning of time, nothing existed.
In this first episode, the start of everything that exists today is portrayed: the sun, the moon, our planet, and the living beings that are now its inhabitants. You will accompany the gods on the journey of creation, and you will witness the fight between the first men against the forces of darkness.
In the second chapter, there is already light in heaven and life on earth, the first men have survived and the horrible night has ceased; but the demons of the darks are still prowling. The next step in Mother Earth's plan is to bring humankind into the world, and surely the wicked one will try to prevent it... will the Mother Goddess be able to achieve her goal?
