Maya Rubbing Lord Shield Pacal
Lord Shield Pacal
Lord Shield Pacal, the first and perhaps the greatest ruler of Palenque (615 – 683 AD) is shown in the temple of the Sun transferring his ruler-ship to his son and successor Chan Bahlum. In his hands is a Mayan symbol of dynastic transference. Pacal is entombed in the sarcophagus under the temple of the Inscription at Palenque.
The Maya Rubbing Lord Shield Pacal is made by stretching cloth over a mahogany board carved with the Mayan reproduction. Oil paint is then applied by hand over the carved area. The rubbing may be washing in cold water; do not dry clean.
The Lord Shield Pacal rubbing is 22.50 inches tall and 15 inches wide. The Maya rubbing is reproduced on a white loincloth and it comes with cheesecloth for framing.
