The Colossal figures in the town plaza

Large conmemorative stone figures grace the southern Guatemalan town of La Democracia not far from the pacific coast. These images are reminiscent of the colossal heads of the olmecs on the gulf coast of Mexico.

During my participation as a musician on the Dec 2005 SEMESTER AT SEA cruise I had the opportunity to visit the town of La Democracia, Guatemala. This site is near the ancient Izapan-influenced archeological site of El Baul.
