Kohunlich, Temple of the Masks

Left side, Pyramid of the Masks: lowest level mask [Dec. 31, 1997]

This powerful rendition of Kinich Ahau is over six feet high and is carved in stucco over a stone base. The bird mask which acts as a headdress for the god is plainly visible, but the jaguar mask under the god's chin which marks him as a sun jaguar is more difficult to make out.
