Quirigua: Monument 7

Quirigua: Zoomorph G [January 8, 2004]

"Emerging from the open jaguar jaws of both heads is the upper portion of a human figure, now eroded, apparently representing Cauac Sky. Since this sculpture is best described as Cauac Sky's funerary monument, the jaguar theme is appropriate, given this creature's association with the night and the underworld in Maya ideology."
