I would like to begin by thanking FAMSI Board members, and FAMSI Advisory Board members for supporting final research for my dissertation "An Iconographic and Historic Analysis of Terminal Classic Maya Phallic Imagery." The financial assistance provided by FAMSI allowed me to conduct additional research in Mérida, Yucatán in May 2000 to document several phallic sculptures in the bodega of the Museo Regional de Antropología and to re-examine the House of the Phalli at Chichén Itzá. I also returned to Uxmal to take additional photographs and measurements of phallic sculptures at the site. Below is an abstract of the dissertation, summary of types of phallic images discussed in the dissertation, and information gathered in the field with the assistance of the FAMSI grant.
