Composite drawing of fragments from south sanctuary jamb, Temple of the Sun. The image depicts K'inich Kan B'alam II standing in front of a Witz Deity that has been decorated with fire and maize vegetation. In front of him rises a stack of repeating supernatural faces. Kan B'alam II holds a jaguar head or figurine that rests on a miniature bench. He wears an elaborate backrack composed of what appears to be the Quadripartite Badge.
