Izapa Ballgame and Sedan Chair
Izapa high stakes ball court game observed by a ruler in a sedan chair. Not a Mayan face, from the Yucatan. Chichen-Itza in the Yucatan - Mayan costumes but not the Mayan facial type. The Nephites settled the East Wilderness. Here we see the unfortunate loser of the ballgame. Mayan sedan chair from a ceramic vase. "Chieftan in a litter." Mayan ballgame on a ceramic vase. Mayan ballplayer, note his one knee pad. Heavily padded player setting up a shot. The game is still played in modern times (without the sacrifice at the end).
