Chac Mool Figurine
The Chac Mool was considered a guard, an emissary of intermediary between humans and their gods, a type of divine Messenger. They are usually male figures, leaning back on their elbows, with feet drawn to the buttocks, and knees thrusts upwards.
The face is harsh and the hand holds a circular plate or bows upon the stomach to receive the offerings.
Chacmools are found in Mexico in Chichen Itzá, Mixco and Tlaxcala Itzá in Yucatan and Quiriguá in Guatemala.
