Quirigua: Zoomorph P [January 8, 2004]

"The front (north) side presents a central sculpted portrait of a youthful Quirigua ruler, probably Sky Xul, successor to Cauac Sky, in full regalia seated in the cave-like gaping jaws of the reptilian cosmological monster. The human figure is wearing a multi-masked headdress and holds a manikin scepter in his right hand, along with a small shield in the left."
