Can you see the Face in Stone?

Mayan carvings are always features in NatGeo specials. Also in those Ancient Alien shows to support the idea that we were visited by aliens/ space travelers in ancient times. Whatever the reason a trip to Mayan Ruins would feel incomplete if there wasn’t at least one carving.

At Tulum the guidebooks talk about frescos and paintings but they were not open to the public when we were there but we still got to see a face carved in stone.

Can you see it?

How about now? See the eyes, the mouth?

Or from this angle? You can even make out the nose in this one.

    Seems strange to see a face on the corner like this one. I would have missed it if you didn’t point it out.

      But it’s definitely a face. The guide told us to look for it before she let us loose. I tried to find info on it online but didn’t get anything worthwhile.

    I definitely saw it as soon as you asked if we could see the face!

    And those Ancient Aliens shows are hilarious, but really get you thinking (especially sites like Sacsayhuaman).

      I will have to look up that site…Sacsayhuaman. I’m not familiar with that one and I thought I’d seen all of those shows LOL. I recognize eric Von danagan’s voice with my eyes closed. As far fetched as some of the theory’s seem when they point out some things (like how they look like astonauts) it does make you think!

    Very cool. I do see the face!
