This photo shows a replica of Mayan temple ruins
is now Uxmal, Mexico. At the inception of the exposition, Edward
H. Thompson, United States Consul to Yucatan, made paper mache
molds of many
of the tablets and ruins of the region. Cast into staff in Jackson
Park and garnished with tropical plants, these reproductions
offered the people of America their first opportunity to study
the artifacts. .
