Incense burner stand depicting the Jaguar God of the Underworld On his nightly journey through the Underworld, the Sun God, K’inish Ajaw, transforms into the Jaguar God of the Underworld. His daily trip to the Underworld mirrored those taken by the deceased. This vessel depicts three figures from top to bottom: a seated ruler or priest dressed as the Jaguar God; a similarly garbed noble emerging from the head and a serpent; and the head of a jaguar.
