Mayahuel becomes a goddess (38A) after her death, and therefore in this relief there are elements related to terrestrial, stellar and underworld deities, such as the fleshless mouth and the circles on her cheeks. On her heart she bears the glyph 2-Rabbit, Ome-Tochtli, the name of the principal pulque god, and on one side is the glyph Ce-Tochtli, 1-Rabbit, the calendrical name of Mayahuel. Made of green stone, the relief measures 135 cm in length. It was found directly below the great relief of Coyolxauhqui. Mexica culture.
