On the Rack of Skulls   (tzompantli)  are placed the heads of those who have been sent to the house of the sun. The heads are pushed on to wooden poles and laid in long rows. To support the poles there are two towers made from more heads, held together with cement.
If you would like to read more about the tzompantli then visit the Templo Mayor Museum.
