While I'm working on Rusi, another world entered my mind.
I'm thinking what is art history? This is graffiti I captured
on film back in 1978. This graffiti most likely predates the
Conquest. In '78 Tikal was quite difficult to get to.
Tikal became a tourist destination, before the major
preservation started. I believe the figure in the center
is a captive, and in fact the figure to the right also may be. In 2001, during
my last trip to Tikal, this image was no longer visible, due to more
modern graffiti obliterating it. Art History is only the history
