Quirigua: Monument 6

Quirigua: South Side, Stela F (Monument 6) [January 8, 2004]

While the portraits on "both sides of the monument stand on elaborate earth-monster pedestals, the northern example is skeletal in contrast to the non-skeletal southern pedestal. Both wear multiple-masked headdresses crowned by the head of God C. The south-facing figure holds the double-headed ceremonial bar clasped horizontally across the chest, but the north-facing portrait holds a manikin scepter across the chest with the right hand and a small round shield in the left hand."
