Chalcatzingo Monument 3 3D Model
Chalcatzingo, Morelos, Mexico Middle Formative Period The site contains one of the most extensive collections of Middle Formative period (c. 900-500 BC) bas-relief stone sculpture outside of the Olmec Gulf Coast lowlands.
Monument 3 shows a feline with a long erect tail and a pelt similar to a puma with a linear feature marking possible color difference. Puma or Mountain Lions also tend to grasp and hold their prey in similar manner as depicted in many of the Chalcatzingo carvings. Our scan data show a nearby partial human with arm and head, and the animal is licking or eating it. A large cacti or similar type plant is seen in the background. Many of these cacti are noted at the site and were likely abundant in ancient times.
