14.5" long. Suitable as a wall hanging. Many Ancient Astronaut theorists believe this engraving shows King Pacal piloting a rocketship leaving Earth. The accepted archaeological description is that it shows King Pacal falling into the jaws of the Earth monster each night to rise again with the power of the sun each morning. Its teeth are enlarged to demonstrate its encompassing power. At the top is the mythological "Moun" bird. The pillar-like construction above Pacal's head is the tree of life. The engraving appears on the sarcophagus lid of King Pacal.
