Panel from the Temple of the Sun. Both text and image rest on a double-headed band decorated with earth symbols. The smaller person at left stands on a kneeling figure who is decorated with marks that identify supernaturals. The left-most person holds a Jester God/Personified Flint figurine that rests on a tiny bench. The person on the right side of the panel stands atop a kneeling supernatural decorated with "k'uhul" (god) symbols. This larger person offers a K'awiil figurine. At center, God L (left) and an unidentified god hold aloft a large bench embellished with jaguar and serpent motifs. Atop the bench are two crossed lances and a shield decorated with the face of G-III. Glyphs recording supernatural locations flank the shield.
The text at left records events in mythological time and the right-most text describes historical events.
