A comprehensive look at Maya cave painting from Pre-conquest times to the Colonial period
"The present volume is not only an extraordinarily detailed and insightful analysis of the painted representations and texts found in Naj Tunich but also a complete survey of all known Maya painted caves... Stone has given us a major monograph on a major Maya site. For completeness of presentation, for clarity of writing, and for depth and scope of analysis, it is a model of what a final report should be, but seldom is." Michael D. Coe, Journal of Anthropological Research
