Odd. They used arch as decoration but never utilized it in their buildings.

Stunning! I have some books about Mexico. I love reading them and observing the pictures shown of them. Uxmal is one of my favourite ones.

Considering the time in which those Olmecs heads were carved, the stone heads are a pretty amazing feat. Also, taking into consideration that those enormous boulders were brought from another region in Mexico(several hundred kilometers away) to the Veracruz coast is amazing. It would be hard to transport them now......how did they do it back then?(several centuries B.C.E) WOW!!!!!!!!!

Great pics Adrian.

Well stated. Olmec heads seem to be one of the more under rated objects of Mesoamerica, im glad you and others here enjoy my thread, thank you.
