Surrounded by hieroglyphs, an ancient ball player demonstrates his skill and strength. The ball game represented the movements of the heavens for many pre-Hispanic peoples and, for the Maya, the game had a religious significance. Elisa Camarena recreates an archaeological piece from Chinkultic, Chiapas. Once thought to be a calendar, as the glyphs represents dates, it is one of the first ball court markers discovered.
Camarena presents the sculpture on a pinewood base.
