The paintings depict figures in procession, wearing a mix of traditional Maya and Spanish garb. Some may be holding human hearts, said Źrałka, who was working on the other side of Guatemala when a colleague tipped him off to the kitchen murals

Very nice, I love old buildings, they have character, history, and often the walls are thicker than in those new "shoe boxes".

If there's a date, it's likely referenced to the tonalpohualli. Hope that can connect it to current events or at least to standard history, and hope a copy can be built of these murals in close to the original colours.
