LexiLine Journal #205 - 2003 : Palenque Temple of Inscriptions and Astronomy

Welcome!

.

There is a recent article entitled
Lore Among the Ruins
by TIM WEINER correspondent in Mexico City for The N.Y. Times
at
http://www.nytimes.com/2003/04/27/travel/27maya.html?tntemail0
which contains a photo of
The Temple of Inscriptions in Palenque, Mexico
by Sarah Martone for The New York Times

Look now not to the Temple but to the stone in that online photo at
the right (part of a wall?, but clearly inscribed and based on the style it is
very old, perhaps an ancient megalith reused in a wall )

Do you see the face - looking right - plus the torso below
clearly carved into the side of this rock?
What about the serpent?

And there are of course cupmarks....

As I show at the file

which is now uploaded to our Meso-America South America directory
at the LexiLine files at
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/LexiLine/
this stone has quite a few figures carved upon it which together
with the cupmarks on it shows the line of the Spring Solstice ca.
3117 BC as a snake-type of figure winding upwards toward Camelopardalis,
a cat-like figure (jaguar) as Orion along the right side of which
this line winds as well as VERY CLEAR cupmarks for Gemini and perhaps markings for
Canis Minor, Canis Major, Taurus, Auriga, Perseus and the Pleiades.

Delightful megalithic art - surely Neolithic Era - from Palenque

See for yourself and look at the photo online at
