Maya Relief of Royal Blood-Letting

A selection of pictures from our British Museum trip are now up on flickr. This is the Mayan relief we looked at first, with the Queen pulling the thorned rope through her tongue.

Other highlights are the glazed brick Immortal, an ancient Iranian ceremonial axe that my picture doesn't really do justice to, the cast of Merenptah's tomb wall and a carved minature altar piece. Plus a bunch of other neat things :)
