Photographer's Note

This is the snout component of a Chaac mask taken from a palace structure at Xkipché, 9.5 kilometres southwest of Uxmal, Yucatan. (No geo coordinates are available.) The snout features two design components, aside from the border: (1) circle motifs; and (2) the image of K'awiil, god of lineages, characterized by the serpent leg. Xkipché (ruins of) is located in the Puuc (architectural) region of southern Yucatan and the city was occupied from the 6th until the 10th century CE. This photograph was taken in the garden of the museum at Dzibilchaltun.
