Chicanna, Str. II

Chicanna: Group A, Structure II [February 18, 1997]

"The north and south wings of the building are plain in design. Although the upper part of the south wing has fallen, there is little doubt that it was identical to the north wing. Stone slabs, which supported figures of humans and mythical creatures, project from the upper façade all around the building. The roof originally supported a narrow, stucco-decorated roof comb, now mostly fallen. Traces of paint on remaining plaster suggest that most of the wall surfaces, including the roof comb, were painted red, with accents in blue-green and yellow."
