Kohunlich is an elaborate complex of Early Classic Period Mayan structures located in southern Quintana Roo, to the west of Chetumal. The image above was taken next to the staircase at the Pyramid of the Masks; the giant masks are said to represent the Sun God, or "Sun-eyed Lord", Kinich Ahau. I took a break from my work with the forestry ejidos in Quintana Roo (see Selva Maya, Selva Maya II, and Selva Maya III) and spent a wonderful morning at this archeological site in 2006. [NOTE: There were originally eight masks at the Pyramid of the Masks, but three were looted in the late 1960's. Wonder where they are now?]
