Description

Caption: "Temple of the Giant Jaguar. The temple after clearing and cleaning at end of the past season. It is now ready for restoration of its temple room, centerline exploration for tombs and then restoration. This is an example of our need for proper scaffolding. Also shown in left foreground is Temple of the Red Stela. Plaza has been cleared and many stelae have been reset in their proper places. This temple originally contained magnificently carved lintels and wall decorations. They were ripped out and carried to Switzerland. Recently I arranged to have replicas made by the Museum in Basle and we will place those this season." RF photo #24185a
