The sculptors of Copan often rearranged the features of a Tlaloc face, here reassembled in the Copan Sculpture Museum. Much of the work in the museum itself is the accomplishment of Barbara Fash. Additional work on installing the exhibits is by Guatemalan archaeologist Carlos Rudy Larios, who is an internationally known conservator, and consultant to the Getty Institute.

To get these photographs FLAAR sent a photography crew to Honduras with a complete portable studio. With a Linhof 4x5, Wisner 4x5, several Hasselblads, Leicas, and a complete Dicomed-Better Light digital scanning camera, Nicholas Hellmuth and Andrea David did exhaustive photography in both museums.

This photography was aided in all aspects by IHAH and Professor Oscar Cruz. We appreciate the assistance of the Hotel Marina for providing a courtesy room in their annex.

This photography was about 8 years ago. FLAAR is still photographing in Copan Ruinas, but no more Leica cameras, no more 36mm film. Today (2009) we use primarily large-format digital (BetterLight on a Cambo 4x5 camera) and medium-format digital (PhaseOne P25+ on a Hasselblad).
