Stele I includes a trace of a face once carved into it. A sign at the site gives an explanation. "The face in the stone. Time and weather have nearly erased it. The stone is called a stele and was part of an arrangement of sand, shell and stone that formed a giant solar calendar. The face may be that of a sun god."
