At the same time, the north side of the foundation of Structure II was remodeled by applying a new covering and adding two enormous masks [highlighted by the white rectangles] of more than four meters (13 ft.) in height on both sides of the central staircase. These huge masks, modeled in stucco, were decorated in red, black and blue.
