Chac Mool at Chichen Itza


Chac-mool or  Chacmool  is the term used to refer to a particular form of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican sculpture depicting a reclining figure with its head facing 90 degrees from the front, supporting itself on its elbows and supporting a bowl or a disk upon its stomach. The chacmool form of sculpture first appeared around the 9th century AD in the Valley of Mexico and the northern Yucatán Peninsula.Their symbolism placed them on the frontier between the physical and supernatural realms, as intermediaries with the gods.

In Chichen Itza, only five of the fourteen chacmools are in their architectural contexts placed within entrance areas near a ritual seat or throne . The rest were found buried in or near important structures.
