Sculpted details from the Mayan archaeological site of Copán, Honduras.

Copán was occupied for over 2,000 years, from the Early Preclassic period through to the Postclassic. The city is on the frontier of the Isthmo-Colombian cultural region, making it located in the extreme southeast of the Mesoamerican cultural region.

As shown in the examples above, Copán developed a distinctive sculptural style within the tradition of the lowland Maya.
