Bonampak: Stela 1 [January 2, 2004]

At the bottom of the Stele you see an earth monster holding up the ruler (white rectangle: note eyes with half-closed eyelids, muzzle, mouth, and ear ornaments). From the cleft in the earth monsters forehead and on each side of his face the young corn god emerges. Hyeroglyphics on a band under Chaan Muan II's feet refer to his name glyph and geneology.

The artist who carved this stela actually signed his work to the left of the tip of Chan Maun II's staff.
