    King Chan-Bahlun (Bird-Jaguar)

    King Chan-Bahlun (Bird-Jaguar) cast stone plaque with antique stone finish reproduction from the temple of the Foliated Cross, Palenque, Mexico. 692 A.D. This sculpture is a fragment of a larger scene that shows one of the ascention rituals of Chan-Bahlum to the throne of the city of Palenque. Chan-Bahlum is shown presenting the "Tialoc", a symbol of ritual bloodletting to the foliated tree of life. This scene occurs in Xibalba, the Maya underworld. Chan-Bahlum and his father Pacal were the most important kings of Palenque and their reign can be considered the golden period of Palenque during which the city became the most important religious and political center in the Yucatan. Chan-Bahlun was born in 635 A.D., ascended to the throne on 684 A.D. at the age of 48 and died in 702 A.D.
