I like this one a lot! Looks line a number of pyramids from Palenque, and maybe a few others. Would make a great gaming table too...
Some artwork from the city of Lamanai:
A cutaway of Copan. Most Mayan city centers were constantly being renovated, with centuries of prior construction buried underneath the visible layer of structures. Copan was no exception; in fact because of the nearby river Archaeologists were given an unparalleled glimpse into this building practice when the river cause a portion of the ritual center of the city to erode away, exposing the layers underneath.
… and Altar 13 at Caracol (830 AD). Looks a lot like one of the smaller structures built within the Copan complex to me.
"Agents of Xibalba"
Inca Warrior costume, looks like it is made of gold:
Can I just say Warden, that I super appreciate how much content and time you put into this thread? Such a helpful reference and just plain interesting material in-and-Of-itself.
Some pictures from the ancient Mayan site known as Takalik Abaj, starting with its location:
Crocodilian stone (definite evidence of Lizardmen in these parts):
Stela 5 and altar 8:
Stela 5 line drawing:
One last really cool photo, also from this site. Would make a cool terrain piece!
Spoiler: More pics of Takalik Abaj
Artwork from Stela 2:
Stela 14 and Altar 48, sadly the stela has lots its inscriptions:
Monument 99, looks like a lone-nosed creature. Made me think of Gonzo from the muppets:
Honored by your kind words; in reality I just really like Mayan art and a lot of stuff like it
Also side note about this location: not only has the name often been labelled as Abaj Takalik, but the ancient name may have been Kooja according to Wikipedia. And its one of the oldest Mayan sites, coming into existence by 400 BC (rest of classical Mayan sites hit their heyday in the 600-900s). Got a lot more reading to do!
A bunch of pics of Mayan script.
And some Aztec day signs:
Did I post this already? I am not sure, but here is some lizardmen concept art:
What is the source for that concept art?
