Both of these ceremonial metates were found on sites in northwestern Costa Rica. They illustrate the elaborate design patterns that are carved on the legs and grinding plates of some examples. The flat legs with cutout designs and round legs with carved lines are typical design traits. The figures carved on the metate on the right are described as crocodiles. The metate on the left measures 10 inches (25.3 cm) high and the metate on the right measures 12 inches (30.5 cm) high.
