Temple 11 and Reviewing Stand[edit]

Would it be possible to add information about the builder of Temple 11 and the Reviewing Stand and its rattle-shaking guardians? These are among the most conspicuous sculptures of the ruins!77.162.130.139 (talk) 12:59, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

This would be Structure 10L-11, which is already summarised in the article text here (where it is mentioned that the structure is believed to originally have been the palace of Yax Pasaj Chan Yopaat). Although a little more detail could be added here, a dedicated article would probable be needed in order to go into the specifics of this building (something along the lines of Tikal Temple I or Tikal Temple V).

Work of Copan iconographers[edit]

Shouldn't the publications by Taube and Baudez on the iconography of Copan somehow be referred to, or at least be mentioned in the references?
