Ball Court Wall

Ball Court Wall
Decorating the walls of the Ball Court in the Yucatan Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá are reliefs depicting the sport spectacle played here centuries ago. The games were apparently quite bloody.

This image, shot from a Yashica ELECTRO 35CC, is from a 35mm Kodak slide and was scanned by an HP Scanjet G4050, digitalized with Photoshop.

I think that wall represents two things: The fact that being a sports spectator is liking a living dead and that if you had been rooting for the losing team your fate was death by holy sacrifice! Imagine the tension in an extra innings game!!

Please, Lord Itzamná, God of All and Lords Ah Puch (God of Death) and Manik (God of Sacrifice) - let there be infinite extra innings to this game!!!!!
