Photographer's Note

"The best examples of stuccowork in the New Empire, however, are at Acanceh in northern central Yucatan. Here in the upper half of a fašade above the medial molding are the remains of a handsome stucco panel, composed of animals, birds, and serpents, among which the bat, squirrel, serpent, and a bird may be clearly recognized. When this was uncovered some forty years ago, the frieze still retained many traces of its original coloring, a bright turquoise blue predominating. While excellent, this frieze is again far inferior to the superb stuccowork at Palenque."

The Ancient Maya, Sylvanus G. Morley, 1946
