Front of Temple XIX before our operations.
The well-preserved floor of Temple XIX is constructed of carefully cut rectangular limestone slabs.
The rectangular slabs of Temple XIX's floor were set in a bed of stucco, and a thin layer of stucco was used to fill the joins. However, no stucco was apparently applied to the floor surface itself.

Using a wooden instrument, George St. Clair carefully excavates a stucco head found at the northwest end of Temple XIX. This is the second stucco head found in the structure; the other was at the eastern end.
