Photographer's Note

Temple XIX marks the boundary of the southern end of the South Plaza, 125 or so metres south of the Temple of the Sun. This tablet, dating from the VIIIth century, shows the ruler, K'inich Ahkal Mo' Nahb III (Lake of the Turtle and the Macaw), r. 721 - c 740 CE, carrying a large mask of an aquatic bird that relates to the mythical founding of Palenque. His headdress features an image of a Macaw (Mo'), symbol of his name. Two kneeling dignitaries accompany him. He holds the hand of the man to his right, Yajaw K'ak, Lord of Fire. Photographed in the site museum.
