Gift of Mr. and Mrs. James C. Gruener 1959.334.a
The skeletal being resembles a low-relief stucco death figure on the wall of Tomb 1 in Zaachila.
Figures appear on two sides of this fragmentary stela (upright stone slab carved in relief). One seems to represent a grimacing warrior who brandishes a club; arrow-like darts festoon his belt and hair. On the other side is a skeleton with one fleshed hand, perhaps a sacrificed captive. The eagle with a leaf in its mouth is a hieroglyph that may identify the captive's name.
