Separated at Birth?

Sendak-AztecCaption

Recently I was wandering around the Internet and came across the image on the upper right (I think my journey started when I was looking up the Gold Museum in Bogotá, Colombia, which led to reading about obsidian, which led to an interesting article about the use of obsidian by Aztec warriors posted on the Corning Museum of Glass’ website. Phew!). Of course it reminded me of Maurice Sendak’s classic Where the Wild Things Are

I’m sure Joseph Campbell would have something to say about this!
