    It is a mixed culture but I'd say it is mostly Caribbean.

    Found a bunch of fun stuff recently: Lego Mayan temples!

    Well sort of... they cover a few different Lego generas, including pirate/islanders, adventure/indiana jones, plus some conquistadors. I found a lot of pictures so I will have to break this up over a few posts:

    I like how the stairs are red in this one... someone just got their head chucked down the temple stairs!

    Some Adventure/Indiana Jones themed legos, with a Mayan/Aztec/Inca twist:

    I liked these, they look like an Inca sky-temple:

    Trooping through the jungle; I like the stone stelae!

    Looks a lot like the Temple of the Jaguar at Tikal:

    People are very creative with legos! Some more jungle-art:

    I like the hidden red and green ninjas on this one. Lots of tiny details, including the flowers and the crocodiles on the bottom. And of course the man-eating plant!

    5652958806_27271f4dfb_o.jpg

    A fantastic jungle-river piece, this would make an amazing wargaming location!

    Another set of falls, I believe its another piece but it looks very similar:

    Ok last Legos for today: Egypt!

    Though these don't have much to do with the Mayans, they are some epic lego pyramids...

    Always looking up more Mayan temples, found a few good computer-made designs:

    I am pretty sure these two were originally built for a mayan-theme park and/or restaurant somewhere in Mexico. Cool designs!

    Small-scale model of the city of Copan, pretty sure from the site itself:

    Didn't have the translation unfortunately :(

    Great model!

    Model of the palace at Palenque:

    Including this picture, even though it is the palace at Knossos (Crete), simply because it reminds me visually of the palace at Palenque:
