A member of the archaeological team takes the first look at one of the four sculpted stones found inside the niches. The style of this possibly re-shaped rock cannot be readily identified as Olmec, and it may have been a representation of a dog-like beast. Both of the pieces whose style is not readily identifiable as Olmec were heavily covered with red pigment, either cinnabar or hematite. (Photo courtesy INAH-Morelos.)
