Photographer's Note

This incense burner stand would have been used by the nobility for ancestor veneration. While no glyphs are present, there are clues to suggest it depicts K'uk' Bahlam I who ruled Palenque from 431 - 435 CE, kicking off the dynasty. The headdress represents a quetzal bird - K'uk and the jaguar ears - Bahlam. Made of limestone it is attributed to the late classic era. It was photographed at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Gatineau, Quebec.
