Photographer's Note

It is necessary to climb the steps in order to examine the detail of the mestiza figure who portrays the motherland. Fortunately, traffic was light, being a Sunday. Near the base, on each side, there is a figure of a jaguar, lord of the night. At various points there are human faces but with no indication as to whom they represent. When the Maya sculpted humans, the visage approached the reality of the subject. Abstract art can tend to be just a touch too impersonal. The upper walls of the main stone block show figures in a procession from Mexico's key figures in history, art, politics and literature.
