Motagua Style
600 - 800 AD or the Late Classic period

Again deeply rooted in the Peten tradition and bounded by the location of such cities as Copan that rise from the basin of the Motagua river in Honduras. Designs include some elements of the previously mentioned styles but technical progress is evident as seen by better cut blocks covering the underlying rubble and a greater refinement of sculptures and facade panels and hieroglyphics.
