    Yeah I have no clue where that one is from.

    The first one is the sarcophagus of King Pakal of Palenque, with some imaginative interpretations of his stone sarcophagus lid (it actually depicts the symbolic passing of the king's soul/rebirth through the cosmos as a reincarnation of the Maize god). The sculpture is from a museum (not such which), and the last two are more modern "reproductions."

    I thought this book was fun and might be of interest. I have no particular knowledge base to compare the book to, other than old PBS shows on ancient civilizations that I may have watched with my parents a long time ago. Flipping through it gives me great ideas for making temples and scenery. Finding this thread has done similar.

    Well, off for a bit now. See you all on the 'morrow!
