Central American Carving

I have always been fascinated by the stone carvings of ancient Mayan Culture. Having found a vintage map of Central America, I thought this would be a good canvas for paying tribute to this art form. This drawing depicts the great ruler of the ancient city-state, Quiriguá (located in Guatemala). His name was K'ak' Tiliw Chan Yopaat, and his reign lasted from 724 to 785 AD, when he died. This stone stele sculpture exists a monument honoring this significant ruler.

Signed prints are available here.
