  • This is a reproduction of a late Maya sculpture that was discovered by French adventurer Le Plongeon in the 19th century at an archeological dig in Chichen Itza. The figure, lying in a contorted position with a vessel on his abdomen, has always been somewhat enigmatic -  but it is believed that he may represent a sacrificial victim, a priest, a man-god, a divine messenger or a particular deity.
