Really beautiful, where was this from? Its like a floating temple!
No clue... a random google image find. I think it makes for good terrain inspiration though!
Some more Mayan masks, mostly jade.
This one is from Palenque, specifically the burial mask of King Pacal the Great (Kinich Janaab Pakal):
Spoiler: More Mayan Jade Masks
Also this Mayan mask reminded me of the Phantom of the Opera:
Its some sort of animal, maybe a dog or a jaguar? Not sure:
And a couple glyphs translated across multiple written languages of the Pre-Columbian world:
Spoiler: More pics
And a couple more plates of glyphs:
Spoiler: more glyphs
Also some monster/snakelike faces based on various structures and sculptures:
@Kalokagathia 's vibrant lizard colors have got me researching modern Mexican street art.
Lots of great color!
Spoiler: More pics
Found some more artwork by Frederick Catherwood from Copan.
And another one called the Casa Grande, at the site known as Zayi (haven't heard of this one before).
I like the Epi-Olmec and Zapotec glyphs best. Perhaps because they are easier to draw than the others.
More Catherwood, Kabah:
Not sure if this one is Kabah or Uxmal:
Cool mask pic...
...not sure why the god of death is known as "the flatulent one"
Some cool Mayan and Aztec costumes of modern-day performers.
Spoiler: more pics
Also from the movie Apocalypto:
A couple more cool ones, starting with "Ek Balam," the jaguar warrior:
Ek Chuah, God of Cacao:
A Rattle snake/coral snake warrior:
Spoiler: a few more
Wow those are awesome!
Found these, labelled as from the Discover Mexico museum in Cozemul.
Pretty sure this one is the Uxmal Great Pyramid (Pyramid of the Magician)
This one looks like part of Palenque based on the stone lintels on the doorways:
Awesome inspiration for tabletop terrain!
Some sacrificial artwork:
I am a fan of the fancy mayan cutting boards (altars )
This makes me want to repaint a bunch of my stuff...
What was once thought to be a pyramid built on the side of a hill at the Mayan city of Tonina, I recently read that turns out, the hill turns out to have been a giant pyramid! It has been so overgrown over the centuries that archaeologists mistook the main pyramid for a hill!
Looks like a pretty epic place!
One of the stela at the site:
Monument 146 at Tonina, looks like it is now in the site museum:
One last shot of the main complex!
