Photograph of a wall relief from Lower temple of the Jaguars (Chamber E), West Wall (Centre south), Great Ball Court, Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico. The photo has been retouched. This appears to be the plaster cast set up in the Philadelphia Museum: AB helped to prepare it (from Maudslay's moulds?) and painted it, labouring over getting the colours right in the artificial light ogf the gallery. It took several months in 1909 / 10. The cast is no longer at Philadelphia, presumably disposed off at some point. Trace of a warrior wearing feather headdress with his feet and the feet of others surrounded by scroll work can be seen. Below these is a line of decorated scroll work and underneath are three warriors wearing feather headdresses, tunics, feather tails. The warrior on the left hand carries a spear in his right hand and a mantle in his left hand. Between each warrior are elaborate patterns. A plain undecorated band divides these warriors from the dado. The dado shows plants and stems with fragments of two small figures holding on to the stems.
