Photographer's Note

This is the West Palace of the Quadrangle of the Nuns, and the north end (to the right). Immediately beneath the medial molding are the doors #6 and #7. To the left are the stacked masks of the god Chaac with wonderfully detailed eyebrows. Next, there is a plumed, rattle-tailed serpent whose maw is open to display the effigy of a human, and representing Quetzalcoatl. Then there is another Maya hut with a Chaac (and missing teeth) mask above, plus, of course, the usual assortment of frets and latticework.
