Photographer's Note

This is the west façade of the arch that dominates a courtyard of what would appear to have been the residence of a very élite family at Labná. On each side of the passage, there is a small room with a simple wall facing. The door jambs demonstrate the usual tapering outward from top to bottom. To the north side, there is an embedded column. Above the medial molding, there are Maya huts, and the four layers of thatch above have been incised to depict the nature of palms employed. The doorways of the huts are niches that contained figures of Maya noblemen seated therein. Here traces of painted stucco remain that formed their distinctive headgear, with green and blue quetzal feathers.
