Creation Panel, pencil sketch. Two quatrefoil cartouches, each with a glyphic caption above. The figure on the left appears human, but the surface of the stone was exposed and the carving is now eroded overall. The right half is in much better condition, and depicts Chaak Xib Chaak seated on a throne. The glyphic caption above names Chaak Xib Chaak.
