Uxmal, Nunnery Quadrangle

Nunnery Quadrangle: East Bldg, with South Bldg on right & El Adivino in background [June 21, 1995]

Notice how the ancient architect played with line and perspective—the top of the East Building visually aligns with the platform on the Temple of the Magician which supports the doorway to Temple 4; the bottom of the medial molding of the South Building aligns with the platform from which the East Building rises, while the roofline of the South Building aligns with the bottom of the medial molding of the East Building.
