Chalcatzingo, Morelos, Mexico Middle Formative Period The site contains one of the most extensive collections of Middle Formative period (c. 900-500 BC) bas-relief stone sculpture outside of the Olmec Gulf Coast lowlands. Monument 41 was discovered by archaeologists from the National Institute of Archaeology and History in 2011. The 1.5 ton stone relief dates to more than 2,800 years ago, and shows three felines sitting in profile with sky or cloud “S” shaped symbols overhead and to the side. The relief, standing about 1.5 meters tall, was found broken in 11 pieces and was expertly restored by INAH conservators. Documented with terrestrial laser scanning techniques (Doering, Collins) and 3D modeled using Geomagic and Maya software (Collins and Jorge Gonzalez- final model). Project collaborative- USF Doering and Collins and Arqueólogo Mario Córdova Tello - Director del Proyecto Arqueológico Chalcatzingo and Arqueóloga Carolina Meza Rodríguez - Responsable Operativo de la Z.
