Ornate Totonac Yoke Uncovered in Veracruz

INAH has uncovered a large grey stone yoke near Tamiahua, in Veracruz. It has carvings representing a serpent head and rattle, and human heads, and a feline face. The style is Totonac, and is dated between 350 BCE-650 CE. The aesthetics on the stone are remarkable and well preserved. INAH has posted a great photo of the Yoke,  and a great video of its discovery is in the INAH report here;
