Quirigua: Monument x

Quirigua: Zoomorph P [January 8, 2004]

"The rear head of the cosmological monster like that on Monment 15, is carved on the south (back) side, flanked by an extensive inscription. Overall, in the opinion of W.H. Holmes, a past director of U.S. National Art Gallery, Monument 16 represents the finest known example of Pre-Columbian sculpture."
