Artist's Description

Uxmal is a set or Maya ruins in the Puuc hills. Puuc style also describes the sytle of the architecture of the ancient Maya ruins in this area. Uxmal is an easy day trip out of Mérida.

The name Uxmal (pronounced Ooosh-mall) means thrice built, meaning that the ruins we see are the results of a 3rd set of buildings on the site. Uxmal’s was founded around 500 AD, but it’s importance waned after the fall of Chichen Itza around 1,200 AD. The site was still inhabited when the Spanish arrived but no Colonial city was built here and it was gradually abandoned.

The Nun’s Quadrangle as it has come to be known, is four buildings adjacent to the Magician’s pyramid. The West building is the newest. Each corner of the building has masks of Chac Mool, the Maya rain god. Seen here without their noses. If I remember correctly, out guide believed that the Spanish had removed the noses believing them to be obscene.

Uxmal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
