Photographer's Note

This is the central section of the second and third levels of the west wing of the palace. The second level is the most highly decorated. Clusters of faux columns relieve the otherwise plain facade, while legitimate pillars have been used to admit more light into the interior. A wide, robust mask of Chaac presides front and centre coincident with images of the descending god (out of the photo), one to the right, one to the left. Sayil was once a large centre occupying not only the valley of the same name, but the surrounding hills.
