In recent years, particularly in 1947, another expedition went to Bonampak in Chiapas. She managed like to add to the rich finds of the past is quite a decent new discovery. The scientific expedition guide took the Carnegie Institution of Washington. (This institution together with the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, belongs to perhaps the greatest achievements in the study of Maya history. Last exercise its study on the interest from one institution to the Englishman James Smithson about a hundred years ago, has provided for scientific purposes in the United States of an order.) Head expedition was Giles Greville Healy; in the short term, this expedition found the eleven richest temples of the Old Kingdom, relating to the period immediately preceding the relocation. She found three magnificent stelae. One of these steles - the second-largest of all hitherto found. This stele is about six meters in height and covered with sculptural images. But most striking of all Healey found in the jungle were murals. With the help of technical means able to restore the once brilliant colors - red, yellow, ocher, green and blue - as well as images of warriors, rulers, priests in ceremonial robes. Similar patterns were previously found only in Chichen Itza, in the Temple of Warriors.
