Maya for “Place Where Ears of Maize Are Stored”
“It is one of the best preserved and most studied of all the Chenes sites. Though it is relatively small, the distinctive architectural remains make a visit very worthwhile.
Much of the west wing has collapsed, as has the eastern part of the east wind, but the central section is mostly intact.
The entire facade of this section is decorated with an incredibly intricate monster-mouth mask, typical of Chenes sites. The design was constructed of stone and stucco, and there are a few remnants of red paint in the eyes of the serpent. A perforated roof comb rises above the front of the structure and originally supported stucco figures.” ~ ~ Joyce Kelly
