- Curator's comments
- One of a number of Maudslay casts from the Sculptured Chamber E, Lower Temple of the Jaguars.
Note that the location of the cast within the chamber (upper right side of left entrance column/wall) is based on the modern reconstruction at the site. Maudslay's photos do not show this part of the column and the drawing that Maudslay published in the Biologia looks very different in that part. Compared to the drawing, the cast looks like the mirrored version of the upper left part.
