This piece shows the ancient Temple of Chamula which is a remote community in the State of Chiapas, in it is one of the few pagan Churches in the country. The locals form part of the Tzotzil population of the State, they rule themselves under their own laws. This particular ruin was once the actual church of the community but due to the Tzotzil rituals the church was burned in a large fire.
