Uxmal, Figure from Magician's Courtyard

Figure in Hieroglyphic Niche, Uxmal Museum [Feb. 21, 1997]

"This figure from the Uxmal museum was uncovered while clearing the courtyard to the West of the Temple of the Magician. It was found as a center altar-piece to the Northern Building on the West side of this mini quadrangle. The caretaker said that it came from the the building to the right of the house of the birds, and to the right of the archway, but facing the house of the magician. This would make sense because that group of buildings has only been reconstructed for around four years. Its late discovery may be why the monument is not mentioned anywhere." (David Hixson, personal communication, Feb. 1998)
