1000-Year-Old Monument with Image of Mayan Ruler Found
Art Daily ^ | Sunday, January 24, 2010 | EFE

A 1000-year-old stele with the sculpted image of a Mayan ruler was found in the archaeological area of Lagartero in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, the National Anthropology and History Institute, or INAH, said. In the bas-relief sculpture the Mayan ruler rises above an individual who lies at his feet, "a scene representing the seizing of power by one Maya group from another," INAH said, adding that the archaeological area of Lagartero will be open to the public this year. INAH experts found the stone monument in late 2009 at the 10th section of Pyramid 4 in Lagartero, the source said. Archaeologist Sonia Rivero Torres, who heads the Lagartero archaeological project, said that the stele or commemorative monument - the first to be found complete on the site - measures 2 meters (6 1/2 feet) long, 55 centimeters (22 inches) wide and 6 centimeters (2 1/3 inches) thick... "In the pre-Colombian monument the profile image of a Mayan ruler is seen standing over a bench carrying a bag of incense in one hand and dressed in a loincloth bound with a sash and wearing sandals and a feather headdress. At his feet, lying on his back on the bench, lies another, smaller person with his torso opened as a sign of sacrifice or of being overthrown," the archaeologist said.

Don't be so glib, there are tribes in Africa that worship her breasts.

It's a cross cultural thing.



Cross species too...

Dunno. Maybe the website doesn’t like direct links because, y’know, they’re a bunch of tight-asses. The original link to it was in Archaeologica, and it’s what I used to visit the article originally. All the site:artdaily.net searches turn up links (three in total) to the article, but each click yields that same lame screen. Could be the site is down for weekly maintenance.
