Artist's Description

Detail on wall of Ball Court at Chichen Itza, Mexico. The court was used for a game that has some similarities to modern scoccer. The Captain of the winning team was beheaded at the end of the game. One game could last days. It was considered an honor to have your life taken in sacrifice to the gods. I would have thrown the game myself!
