Photographer's Note

Not, it is not basketball but a ground of ball available to all the Maya sites. That of Chichén Itza is largest and most impressive of Mexico. The ground is 146 meters long on 37 broad and its enclosing walls 7,5 meters are high.
The goal of the play consisted in launching with the elbows, the knees or the hips, a hard rubber ball through stone circle. It appears that the losers were decapitated... unless they are not the winners!
