About the cover image

The Mayan figure on the front cover is reproduced from a drawing by Frederick Catherwood which appears in volume two of Stephens’ Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan (1841). One of two bas-relief figures flanking the altar of the Temple of the Sun at Palenque, it was probably carved circa 692 A.D.
