Photographer's Note

This structure (Q95) is located near the entrance and to the northeast of the plaza. It is named after the remains of a stucco mural (on the floor underneath hut) showing a fisherman (deity?) with a speared triggerfish, and a bound crocodile. Like most Maya murals, it may tell a story and/or serve as an educational device.

At Mayapán, priests were no longer a dominant factor. What developed was a more urban society, also more militaristic, and centralized, certainly. There was also a much more pronounced reliance on trade than was the case at other Maya cities.
