This sculpture is on display in the archaeological museum of Comitán de Dominguez, to the south of San Cristobal. I confess that my Spanish is hopelessly inadequate, but it may be that this was found in a tomb associated with a ball court, one of the three at Tenam Puente. As with Toniná, ball courts were a special place for carrying out ritual sacrifice. In my opinion, it is a masterful work of art.
