These steps and the stela are covered by a tarp as are other of the more promenent areas. The sign talked about this being a joint project with The Getty Foundation, to put back together and protect the intricately carved steps.

The stone they used as the base for the carvings is very soft and easy to work when it is fresh from the quarry and then becomes very hard as it is exposed to the air, a good combination for making fancy designs.
