Maya ritual of blood-letting.
Yaxchilán lintel 24, considered one of the masterpieces of Maya art, is one of a series of three limestone panels from Structure 23 at Yaxchilán, a Classic Maya center in Chiapas, Mexico.
The scene represents a bloodletting ritual performed by the king of Yaxchilán, Shield Jaguar the Great (681-742), and his wife, Lady K’ab’al Xook (Itzamnaaj Bahlen III). The king holds a flaming torch over his wife, who is pulling a thorny rope through her tongue. Scrolls of blood can be seen around her mouth.

This sacrifice mirrored the Maya story of creation, when the gods let their blood to create the human race. By choosing to take part in the ritual, the queen demonstrated both her moral and physical strength to the people, and her suitability as a Maya royal.
