The hunt god, God Y, stands in front of a flaming incensario, wearing what appears to be a peccary skin. His head emerges from the peccary’s open jaws. Rubber incense burns in the incensario, which is of a spiked design suggesting that it belongs to the Hocabá-Tases complex (see Graff 1997). Drawing after Villacorta C. and Villacorta (1976:302).
