LOCATION Between Stelae 1 and 3, in front of Structure A-15, where it was found lying face down by Maler. Removed in 1971 to the Museo Nacional de Antropologfa y Etnologia, Guatemala City.

CONDITION Intact until damaged by looters in the mid-1960s, who started to saw the front off from the top but, wearying of this task, proceeded to smash the upper left-hand corner. Most of the broken pieces have been recovered. The front surface is only slightly weathered; the incised writing on the sides has suffered more, especially along strata of softer stone.

MATERIAL Hard limestone.

SHAPE Parallel-sided, with rounded top.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 3.29m
PB 0.77m
MW 1.07m
WEC 1.02m
MTh 0.46m
ReI 2.5cm

CARVED AREAS Front carved in relief; sides incised; back uncarved.

PHOTOGRAPHS Front: reproduced from Maler's original negative of 1905. Sides:

Graham, 1970.

DRAWINGS Graham. Drawing of the front based on field drawing corrected by artificiallight, and detail photographs. The incised glyphs on the sides were inked in by artificial light and then photographed. Details of the damaged area at the top of the left side were taken from a cast made by R. E. W. Adams in 1961.
