Xunantunich, Str. A-6

Xunantunich, Structure A-6-2nd: the west frieze [January 4, 1998]

"The frieze originally wrapped around all four sides of Str. A-6-2nd. Today, only fragments on the east and west remain. The rest fell away, probably centuries ago. The sculpture is divided into two horizontal sections. Symbols representing twisted cord or plaited rope connect all elements of the frieze."
