MAYAN CROCODILE CANOE
This picture shows all three views of the Dan Theus "crocodile canoe." The Hybrid" stylized crocodile head is at the top, complete with horns. On the back or "in the canoe" are three human profiles. The largest one in the center is presumably the First Father that will be transformed or reborn into the Maize god. The end of the tail at the "stern of the canoe" is another human profile representing another important elite figure. A fifth human profile is located at the end of the front leg of the crocodile. It has been suggested that the row of stylish notches on the bottom might represent knots on a mummy case. It measures 113/4 inches (29.8 cm) long, 5 inches (12.7 cm) wide and 9/16 inch (1.4 cm) thick and is made of light brown Texas Pedernales chert.
