Well, the answer to your question is "YES", but not as directly as you might think. ;)

That is from the 19th century British artist Frederick Catherwood, called "Broken Mayan Idol at Copan, Guatemala", painted sometime in the 1840s.

Catherwood and author John Lloyd Stephens rediscovered the Maya ruins of Central America before the age of photography, and Catherwood's paintings reintroduced the western world to the Maya and sparked renewed interest in the romance of lost civilizations long before Indiana Jones, rekindling a popular fascination with such things that lives today, from documentaries on the History Channel, to the adventures of Lara Croft. Good find!
