The Skulls from Structure 5D-87

These are the skulls that adorn Structure 5D-87 and give it the unofficial name of The Temple of Skulls. There are three skulls in total, the one facing us, one facing away from us at the other end of the step, and one facing forwards beneath the doorway to the vaulted niche.
