Naranjo, Ball-court Sculpture 1

LOCATION When found in 1979 by site guards employed by the Instituto de Antropologla e Historia, this fragment was lying on the ground to the northwest of Structures B-32 and B-33, a pair of mounds that forms one of the two ball courts at this site.

CONDITION The fragment represents about one third of a ball-court marker ring. The side lying uppermost is so badly eroded that the two hieroglyphs carved on it are barely distinguishable; the other side and the periphery show only moderate weathering.

MATERIAL V\fhite limestone.

SHAPE A carefully dressed ring of square section with rounded inner edges. At one end the fragment becomes wider, where presumably a tenon was formed.

PHOTOGRAPH Graham, 1979.

DRAWING Graham, based on a field drawing not checked by artificial light.

NOTE A ring without surviving tenon was found by von Euw at Xultun, just to the north of Structures A-16 and A-17, a ball court. Its outer and inner diameters are 0.42 m and 0.12 m; its thickness O.22m.

DIMENSIONS

Outer dia 0.42 m
Inner dia 0.19 m
