Mexican Wall Plaques - Small Chichen Itza Plaque
This plaque shows the Mayan site of Chichen Itza, probably the most famous of all Mayan archaeological sites, dating from 600 AD. It was a functioning city with many amenities such as a market, a ball court and various religious sites.
The pyramid at the centre of Chichen Itza is a huge building full of religious symbolism. Each of its four sides has 365 steps (the Mayan solar year), 52 panels (representing both weeks in a year and the 52 years in a Mayan century), and 18 terraces (the number of months in a Mayan year)
Also shown on the plaque is a chacmool - a reclining figure. Many of these have been found at Chichen Itza and the bowl that they hold is believed to have been a receptacle for religious offerings. Each plaque is hand crafted in Jalisco, Mexico.
