Quirigua: Monument 3

Quirigua: Stela C [January 8, 2004]

"Columnar stela, the twin of Monument 1, standing 4m (12 feet) above the surface. It is sculpted with a frontal portrait of Cauac Sky on the southern side, wearing his headdress and holding a double-headed ceremonial bar horizontally across his chest. Cauac Sky's face is especially well preserved on this monument. He is standing on a row of four glyphs instead of the usual earth-monster mask."
