Most Masterful Maya Arch

“. . . Labná’s arch is quite masterful and supposedly possesses one of the most delicately-tapered curvatures in the whole Maya world – an engineering marvel by Pre-Columbian stanards. The technological appreciation lost on me, I thought it simply looked like a handsome arch. Standing and gazing at the heavy entrance, I was more interested in the traveler who would have once passed under that beautiful curve. Merchants, pilgrims, refugees, those headed to Uxmal and those returning all the more enlightened from their journeys.”
