|Comments: Old god wearing deer antlers emerges from the serpents mouth. Bird and God K. Noteworthy are two vases ( K1882 and K1384)--discussed by Dave Stuart in his 2010 Antigua workshop--in which the serpent who is the foot of K'awiil emerges from behind one of these objects, but instead of the usual T671 /chi/ hand seen on the monuments, on these vases one finds an animate agave or century plant ( /chih/ )--the source of pulque and tequila. Dave suggested that this might be an agave aspect of Chahk (who can have plant attributes). He also regards it as an ancestral toponym, and not a throne. |
