Image composed of several details from various locations, including Pier C and East Alfarda from Temple of the Inscriptions. The leftmost drawing appears to be a preparatory sketch for the complete drawing of the figure from Pier C (2d from left) who wears a net jade-bead skirt and holds a child with K'awiil attributes. The two small headdresses are from Piers B and C, respectively; the drawings below them represent the Quadripartite God bases from Piers D and E.
The figure on the East Alfarda wears a pectoral with the Number 6 and a daysign cartouche.
