Rollout of two out of several panels of the portrait of Curly Face, a rare 5th century deity, part of the Tiquisate Trinity. The discovery of these gods over a thousand years ago has just recently been announced and will be published in Nicholas Hellmuth forthcoming new book on Maya iconography.

Although Tiquisate was a non-Maya portion of pre-Columbian Guatemala, Curly Face, Beady Eye, and Sour Mouth (the three members of the Tiquisate Trinity) were also honored in the central Peten.
