Fans of Frederick Catherwood's art will recognize this immediately as Stela D at the Mayan site of Copan in western Honduras. I thought it would be fun to overlay his lithograph on a panorama including the stela as it looks today. The idea was to put the nineteenth century art into modern context. Catherwood's image was published in 1844 in "Views of Ancient Monuments in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan" and is now in the public domain.
