This ball player is a replica of an original wall relief found in Palenque, Mexico. The ball player plays an ancient Mayan game now known as Ulama, one of the oldest known team sports in the world. A fast paced and bloody game, the original sport was thought to be used for religious ritual. The original relief dates back to 590 A.D., though the sport has been traced back to 1400 BCE.
This wall hanging measures 11.5 inches high, 11.5 inches wide, and .75 inches deep. Piece weighs about 6 pounds. Designed with sawtooth hardware for easy hanging.
