Description The face and the front surface of the stela are polished and smooth, and the top, sides, and back are roughly flattened. Therefore, it is likely that the head was inserted into a niche. The outside frame of the stela might have been inscribed with the name of the person represented. The soft features of the face may indicate a juvenile or female.
