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 4 is located on the SE side of Monument 3, and is a large rock slab with similar feline iconography, depicted as cats consuming humans. Two felines are shown on this piece with fangs and claws prominent and each holding a human personage.
The rock today rests on its side and is in a different position. We have uprighted the stone in this 3D model to show the proper orientation of the carving.
