Mayan Beauty

Ladies, you may think you suffer to try to look beautiful, but take a close look at the dental work on this skull. One semi-precious stone remains. The holes drilled to hold these aids to beauty are clearly visible. The skull was unearthed in Comalcalco in the Mexican state of Tabasco, where 116 tombs more than 1,000 years old have been found in what is believed to be a prehispanic Mayan cemetery. This jaw must have belonged to a member of the elite (title link).
