A detail of the original Aztec Templo Mayor (main temple in the centre of the magnificent Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, founded in 1325 CE): a sculpture of a snake on top of a low wall beside a stairway. The ruins of the great temple were only rediscovered in Mexico City some 25 years ago. (Credit: NJ Saunders)
