Chiapas - 2005
Museum of La Venta
Sculptures and model of the Olmec city La Venta in Museum of La Venta

The first stop on our journey was the Museum of La Venta.  The museum contains several examples of Olmec sculpture.  I felt that the Olmec sculptures were somewhat crude compared to the elegant Mayan carving at Palenque and Copan, although I really loved the dolphin sculpture.

Here are links to great websites on the Museum of La Venta:
