Photographer's Note

The Platform of the Eagles and Jaguars is located only a short distance southeast of the Tzompantli. It is a square structure, with steps on all four sides. Projecting beams look like the bodies of plumed serpents whose heads emerge from the tops. The walls feature low slopes, while immediately above there are panels decorated with eagles and jaguars, devouring human hearts. I will wait a few moments for this group of tourists to move on, for a closeup.
