A frequently portrayed deity in Maya iconography is Kin Ahau, the “Sun Lord”. According to native beliefs, the sun, like life itself, went through a cycle that changed from daytime to nighttime. During the night, the sun had to journey through Xibalbá, or, land of dead and overcome the dangerous gods of death that ruled over it. As he traveled through this underground world he would change into a jaguar or a person with feline ears, big eyes, aquiline nose and a “T” shaped incisor.
