Abstract

An unknown myth on a Maya vessel. For the first time eight scenes are presented here which have a mythical relation. They are on a Late Classic Maya vessel. The formal analysis shows a four step rhythm. There are iconographic details regarding fertility and death. Since the glyphs which accompany the pictures are not readable, the content as a whole remains puzzling. Un mito desconocido sobre un recipiente Maya. Por primera vez se presentan ocho escenas (clásicotardío maya, aproximadamente siglos VIII-IX d.c.) sobre un recipiente cuyo contenido reproduce un relato mítico. El análisis formal deja reconocer un ritmo cuatripartito así como relaciones con la fertilidad y la muerte. Ya que no es posible traducir el texto jeroglífico toda la representación permanece en la enigmática.
