This incredible, ornately carved huge sandstone monument, is at the Archaeological Park and Ruins of Quiriguá, an inscribed UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Department of Izabal, Guatemala. This altar is placed in front of Zoomorph P, and contains glyphs and iconography relating to the rule and seating of ruler Sky Xul. The altar emphasizes what is depicted on Zoomorph P relating to it being an accession throne. The altar also contains a Creation story and its elaborate and detailed carving indicate a high level of standard for sculpture.
