A Mayan frieze has been discovered inside a pyramid that dates to the 8th century during an archaeological dig in northeastern Guatemala.

The carving, which measures roughly 26 feet wide and 6 feet high, shows three human figures wearing elaborate bird headdresses and jade jewels, seated cross-legged over the head of a mountain spirit.
