No provenance is provided in the Toniná site museum for this particular sculpture. It is one of my favourites with excellent proportions for the captive. Notice the positioning of the head - looking up - waiting for the knife that will end life. The Maya did not fear death. For them, everything was part of a cycle. The sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening, and this is repeated the following day. As is said - what goes around, comes around!
