Photographer's Note

This sculpture is one of the really fine pieces of Maya art. It was found at the same time the underlying western staircase was discovered at the Pyramid of the Magician. It is actually from Temple I. Someone, not too perceptive, labelled it the "Queen of Uxmal". It presents a male, possibly a young priest, emerging from the maw of a serpent. Scarification is to be noted on the right cheek.

This photograph was taken in the archaeological garden, Chankanaab Lagoon, on the Island of Cozumel.
