Composite reconstruction of limestone panel fragments. Profile of a male facing left who wears an elaborate counterweight earflare and a large bead necklace. His upswept hair is held with a headdress like that worn by Itzamnaaj or God D. The associated glyphs name K'inich Janaab Pakal, Palenque Ajaw.
Torso and glyph fragments were found at the north end of the Northwest Court of the Palace. Mayer (1995:28) reports that the panel is part of a private collection in Brussels; however, the torso and glyph fragment are listed in the Bodega of Palenque (1979:No. 81). See SD143 and 141 for fragment details.
