Our large version of the famous sarcophagus lid from king Pacal's Tomb c. 680 A.D. Temple of Inscriptions Palenque One of the most magnificent and famous pieces of Maya art yet discovered,King Pacal's sarcophagus lies deep within Palenque's Temple of Inscriptions. King Pacal was one of the longest ruling kings in history and left behind a grandlegacy in the monuments of Palenque.  Laser etched into a piece of black slate and displayed on a wood stand or hand held.  This tablet is also known as the Ancient Astronaut Tablet because it appears king Pacal is guiding a spaceship or looking through a telescope or other technology.  These observations have fueled decades' worth of speculation about "ancient astronauts."

Each artwork from the Ancient Relica Series is created to be visually and tactically exciting.  The heavy cold feel of the black slate and rough edges drives a sense of discovery.  You just can't get this feeling from books or pictures... you need to feel.... let your eyes feel.  Experience what it's like to explore the details of these ancient hieroglyphs, pictographs and petroglyphs up close and personal.  Our goal is to give you profoundness and discovery - like when such sites were first uncovered. Each Artwork is completely unique and are modeled after the original inscriptions and images.  These relics you CAN touch!  Discover your World!
