LOCATION Found by Graham around 1980 on a visit to the one-room schoolhouse of Guaquitepec, a village or aldea marked on few maps but about 22 km northwest of Ocosingo. Nothing in this location suggested the existence of a pre-Conquest site.
CONDITION Badly damaged and lacking the head. Resembles Monument 28 in havirg had the shoulders trimmed and leveled with mortar in later times to serve as a pedestal for a baptismal font, and having a channel gouged down the back to accommodate a drainpipe. The torso has been broken cleanly in half, perhaps deliberately to facilitate carriage. On each drawirg of the figure, the broken line just below the top irdicates the lower limit of applied mortar, and the dot-and-dash line the central fracture. The mismatch in height of the glyphs on either side of the break suggests post-Conquest trimming of the fracture for a closer fit. The two halves have been set slightly out of adjustment rotationally.
SHAPE A standing human figure sculptured in the round with an integral base.
CARVED AREAS Carved in the round, with an integral base. The figure's back and all four sides of the base were inscribed.
DRAWINGS Graham, based on photos and field drawings of the front, back, and lower portions of the sides; but drawings were done without the use of raking light or stereophotos, and in some haste.
