The Column of Death at Mitla, Hugged by Mesoamericans For Millennia

August 28, 2020 - General
The Column of Death at Mitla has been closed off from hugging by the public for a long time, as repeated hugging causes damage. But the column in the top photo is exactly identical, in every way, to the true Column of Death hugged by Mesoamericans for centuries.

The Column of Death is the name given to a pillar at the archaeological site of Mitla, in the southwestern Mexican state of Oaxaca. The column was named for a legendary ritual in which it appeared.
