This one is enjoyable, a selection of tropical birds, the feathered serpent, people wearing interesting costumes. My favorite is the man or god with eagle claws for feet who is standing on the serpent. Nothing violent which is fine by me. The familiar image of the great king Pacal, from Palenque is here as well. I believe it is a relief from his tomb.
