Soon, more than an hour passed.
The scattered members of the tripartite joint exploration team are still visiting the ruins of the ancient city of Copan, wandering among the many long-abandoned ruins, feeling the mysterious and splendid Mayan civilization.
At this time, Ye Tian and the others had come to the front of a small hill, stopped one after another, and looked up at the top of the hill.
The hill is about 30 meters high and is made of piles of earth and stones. At the top of the hill, stands an ancient altar made of granite stones.
And the road leading to the altar at the top of the mountain is sixty-three granite steps.
These steps are made of 2500 granite ashlars, about 30 meters high, about 10 meters wide, with a **** of 60 degrees, and they are very steep from the foot of the mountain to the altar at the top.
On these steps, thousands of Mayan hieroglyphs, various patterns, and patterns are engraved, and a statue of a human head is placed every twelve meters.
In addition, on both sides of this granite staircase, there are also two piebald pythons, with the head underneath and the tail on the top, hanging upside down. They are quite vigorous and a bit strange.
As before, it was Professor Delgado who introduced this Mayan ruins to everyone.
"Steven, David, gentlemen, the altar ladder you see now is the famous'hieroglyphic ladder'. This altar ladder is full of Mayan hieroglyphs.
It is through the study and translation of the Mayan hieroglyphs carved on this ladder that we have a certain understanding and understanding of the mysterious and splendid Maya civilization and the history of the Copan Kingdom.
The Mayan hieroglyphs carved on this granite staircase record the history of the Copan Kingdom, as well as the history of some other city states and tribes of the Mayan Empire, as well as some ancient legends.
In terms of studying the history of the Mayan civilization and the Copan Kingdom, the'hieroglyphic ladder' is an invaluable treasure. It is a treasure house of Mayan hieroglyphics, a Mayan dictionary and history books carved on the ground,..."
As Professor Delgado said, this altar ladder is a treasure trove of Mayan scripts. It is invaluable. Every step on the ladder is a top antique cultural relic.
Because of this, this ‘hieroglyphic ladder’ is very tightly protected. The hills are surrounded by iron railings, and anyone is forbidden to climb the stairs and go to the altar on the top of the mountain.
As a result, people can only stay at the foot of the hill and look up. They cannot see the altar at the top of the hill, nor can they see the Mayan hieroglyphs and patterns carved on the steps, and the head sculptures of various shapes.
Of course, it doesn't include Ye Tian. The railings at the foot of the mountain can block his footsteps, but they can't block his sharp vision.
Through perspective, he saw this steep and famous ‘hieroglyphic ladder’ instantly.
Every Mayan hieroglyph, every pattern, and every statue engraved on this famous staircase was clearly presented in his eyes, without any omission.
The old altar standing on the top of the hill was quickly seen through by him, without missing any corner.
In these places, apart from seeing many Mayan hieroglyphs and patterns, and seeing the glory and splendor of the Mayan civilization, he did not have any surprises.
This is normal. The ‘hieroglyphic ladder’ has been studied by countless archaeologists and literal semiotics. I don’t know how many times. Any secret has been discovered long ago. How can it be kept until now?
After quickly looking through the stairs in front of him and the altar on the top of the hill, Ye Tian's line of sight passed through the stairs and looked inside the hill to see if there would be any surprises.
In the blink of an eye, his gaze had reached five or six meters deep into the hill.
In the process, he saw a lot of rocks and soil, and even some human and animal bones. These things were mixed together, and they were very strong.
In addition, he also saw some creatures living inside the hills, as well as the roots of trees that had been carbonized.
Suddenly, a dark space flashed out and appeared in front of his eyes.
This is an inverted funnel-shaped cone-shaped space, just like the hills outside. The top is small, the bottom is large, and the bottom is a square. The four walls are made of granite slabs and are very strong. First Reading Network
The square at the bottom of the funnel is about 1.5 meters higher than the ground where the hill is located, and the area is 4 to 5 square meters.
And the height of this hidden space is also very limited, no more than four meters high, and it gets smaller as it goes up.
In the center of this hidden space, there is a marble column with a diameter of about thirty centimeters, which runs through the entire space from bottom to top.
There is a giant python wrapped around this stone pillar, but this giant python is covered with feathers, and has a human face and a pair of huge wings. Its wings spread out and assumes a volley attack posture.
"Wow! Quetzalcoatl! Unexpectedly, there is such a beautiful and unusual sculpture hidden under the'hieroglyphic ladder', it is a priceless treasure!"
Ye Tian exclaimed secretly in his heart, and a hint of surprise flashed deep in his eyes.
Quetzalcoatl is a deity commonly believed in many ancient Indian civilizations in Central and South America. The image is generally portrayed as a large feathered snake.
In the Mayan civilization, the Quetzalcoatl was also known as Kukulkan and was known as the incarnation of the sun, the sun god.
It is the **** that brought the rainy season in the hearts of the Mayans and was related to sowing, harvesting, and harvesting.
According to the Mayan legend, the Quetzalcoatl ruled the morning star, invented books and laws, and brought corn to mankind. Quetzalcoatl also represented death and rebirth, and was the protector of the priests.
For the Mayans, the Quetzalcoatl is supreme. Not only the Mayans, but also the Aztecs, who are the three ancient Indian civilizations, also believe in the Quetzalcoatl.
Today, in many parts of Central and South America, many people still believe in Quetzalcoatl. Temples and various sculptures of Quetzalcoatl can be seen everywhere in Central and South America.
The Mayan civilization is one of the largest and most famous pyramids in the world, the Pyramid of Kukulcan on the Yucatan Peninsula in southern Mexico, which was built for the Quetzalcoatl god.
The altar in front of me was obviously built for the feathered snake god, but the Copan people hid the statue of the feathered snake **** in the altar under the stairs engraved with hieroglyphs, the structure is very ingenious and hidden.
Judging from the shape of the Quetzalcoatl statue, its carving date is about the sixth century AD, and it has been more than 1,400 years.
In that era, the Copan Kingdom had just been established, and it was in an ascending period, and it was thriving.
By extension, the altar used to worship the Quetzalcoatl should also be built in that era.
As for the hieroglyphs and patterns on the altar, as well as the thousands of hieroglyphs and patterns carved on the steps, they may not have been carved in that era. They may have been carved in successive hundreds of years.
For the Mayans of the Copan Kingdom, the "hieroglyphic ladder" is their history book, which records the history of the Copan Kingdom.
In fact, the light radiating from Ye Tian's eyes on the statue of Quetzalcoatl and the outside altar and steps also confirmed his judgment. Naturally, it is impossible to make a mistake.
There are many Mayan hieroglyphs and various exquisite patterns on this sculpture of the feathered serpent god, some of which are the first time I have seen it.
And these Mayan hieroglyphs and patterns discovered for the first time can undoubtedly greatly enhance the value of this feathered serpent **** ~ www.mtlnovel.com ~ and also enable people to better understand the ancient Mayan civilization.
It is a pity that this priceless Quetzalcoatl statue has nothing to do with Ye Tian. He can only admire it secretly and keep in mind the words or patterns discovered for the first time on the statue, which may be useful in the future.
Except for the Quetzalcoatl statue, there was nothing else in this secret space, only endless darkness.
After appreciating it for a moment, Ye Tian retracted his gaze and ended the perspective.
Next, they admired the towering altar and the words carved on the stairs for a while, before leaving here and walking towards the main pyramid not far away.
It is the most important building in the ancient city of Copan, and it is also the most magnificent and tallest building, which is shocking.
In Ye Tian's eyes, that was the gateway to the treasures of the Mayan Empire Golden City!
