The Nunnery Quadrangle, Uxmal—This early morning view of the
Nunnery Quadrangle,taken near the northeast corner, reveals the intricate detail
of the stone mosaic work. A great program of iconography that displays the celestial
and royal line of cosmological legitimacy can be read on the upper story art of all four
sides of the Quadrangle. Here lies the center of the shamanic and political power of
the Uxmal dynasty and the Puuc Confederacy.
