Estación Stela 18

Estela 18Esta fué tallada en roca metamórfica tipo gneis y no proviene de la región. Esto hace pensar en el extraordinario esfuerzo que implicó el transporte de la roca desde su lugar de orígen, hecho que refleja el poder y la riqueza de Tak'alik Ab'aj. Esta estela por sus dimensiones 4.02 mt. de alto x 1.20 mt. de ancho y 0.65 mt. de grosor se cataloga como una de las mas altas de la Ciudad.English translation:Stela 18This stela was carved from gneiss, a metamorphic type of rock, which is not from this region. This leads one to consider the extraordinary effort that it meant to transport this rock from its place of origin, a fact that reflects the power and richness of Tak'ali Ab'aj. This stela is one of the tallest in this ancient city with dimensions of a height of 4.02 meters, a width of 1.20 meters and 0.65 meters thickness.
