This sculpture was located on the main façade of the Pyramid of the Magician and is known as the Queen of Uxmal. In reality it is the face of a young man. Out of the gaping jaws of a stylized serpent emerges a human head with earflares, a pierced nose, and a headpiece of jade discs. His facial expression is grim, and extremely concentrated. This person of high status, possibly a ruler, has apparently carried out a ritual in which he was symbolically swallowed by a boa and then resurged with the powers of a shaman. The marks on his right cheek also suggest this rite.
