Wall of Faces

I love the way the geometry of this sculpture fades off in to the distance.  It gives a great perspective of the magnitude of the wall.  If you look to the near face, you’ll notice that each row consists of faces carved into the stones. This wall was a tribute to all the warriors that fell at Chichen Itza during their ceremonial ball games. Just one corner of the structure, you can begin to gain an idea of the number of people who lost their lives in this brutal yet awe inspiring game.
