One of three panels from Bilbao illustrating a "diving" god who emerges from the great jaws of the cosmic caiman or Makara.

The deity wears a crown made of what appears to be a development of the trefoil symbolism which is usually associated with the caiman in both India and among the Maya.

From: Mayan Genesis by Graeme R. Kearsley, Fig. 168/4 . See page 6.
