Chicanna: Str. II cord holder

Chicanna: Structure II detail [January 5, 2003]

Looking toward the main doorway from inside Structure II, one can see the still-intact wooden linten over the door as well as a cord holder used to tie up curtains. The Maya used woven fabric to partition off areas of a room or to cover external doorways.

One can imagine the riot of color which bright fabrics likely provided.
