The upper portion of his limestone face had been eroded over the course of time, but the nose, lips and chin were still clearly visable. I was looking forward to preserving this reminant of the Mayan past and incorporating it into our beachside plans.
Unfortunately, someone else also had plans for our Mayan face. I came back this April, only to find someone had removed the stone carving. It was here in December '08 when I took these pictures, but is it now gone forever. Never to look over the bay that he has probably gazed upon, for over a half of a millenium.
Sorry to say, but he's probably sitting on a shelf, in somebodys' home, overlooking a 42 inch Plasma TV. What an end to my reminant of the Mayan past.
