It is called the Throne of Venus. The allusion is occasioned by the stucco panel, not exactly in great shape, that faces above the throne. One can detect the fact that is would have been brilliantly painted in its time, with the blues, reds, greens or yellows favoured by and available to Maya sculptors. The whole sits at the top of the staircase in the Hall of Audience. Maya rulers claimed that they were one with the gods, and did not hesitate to live surrounded by symbols thereof.
