Photographer's Note

A shot of an artistic detail on the palace of the governor in Uxmal. The guide told us that this image represents a throne of an important person, because of the presence of a headdress. The building is believed to have been the residence of Mayan rulers.

"The Palace of the Governor is regarded by many experts as the best example of Puuc architecture in existence. The Palace of the Governor stands on an artificial raised platform and is thought to be one of the last constructed building on the site (around 987AD). The structure has a typical plain lower section and a richly carved upper. Amongst the depictions are serpents, lattices and masks and also a central seated god-like figure with a long plumed head-dress. "

I increased contrast and added a frame.
