Uxmal: Nunnery Quadrangle & Pyramid of the Magician from southwest [June 22, 1995]

"The open volume, composed by richly articulated surfaces and related by storied changes of level, is the most strikingly developed formal aspect of ancient American building. Painstaking attention to the spatial forms among edifices is lacking at no major architectural site in ancient America."

Kubler, Studies in Ancient American & European Art, p. 249
