Stela 5

Yaxchilan: Structure 20, Stela 5 [January 3, 2004]

An image of Shield Jaguar II as a warrior, from the river side of Stela 5 which portrayed war themes. This particular stela happened to break into two fragments as it fell, and unlike most of the other stela, the river side of this fragment happened to fall face down and was thus protected from the rains.
