Photographer's Note

On the north side of the South Plaza three temples are aligned from west to east, in front of the Grand Acropolis. Temple VIII in the west has not been excavated and is a giant blob of stucco. In the middle, Temple VII is highlighted by a tall palapa. When I visited, the stucco relief sculptures were covered in opaque blue plastic so that no photographs were possible. I have seen photos and read descriptions suggesting that the sculptures show rows of seated figures, probably rulers, wearing their headdresses and wide belts. Temple VI in the foreground features a mask of a god at basement level, the photo of which I shall upload tomorrow. This view from above makes clear the structure of temples at Comalcalco, all the same, and in the Palenque style.
