The ancient Mayans used to registered their history, important events or tell tales throught Estelas, big stones with exquisite engravings. Here a small selection of pics of Estelas from Palenque Archeological site Chiapas.

This is a Mayan Estela, located in the arqueological site of Palenke

A Estela consist in a big limestone with engravings of historical, mythological or rulers information. Here you can apreciate a person coming out of the mouth of a serpent or dragon, probably Kukulcan one of the mayans deities. The work it´s amazing.
