Los petroglifos de Pool Balam, Yucatán
Download Full Text
The archaeological rescue on a northeastern road of the state of Yucatán, led to the finding of a cave named Pool Balam, in the maya yucatecan language. In one of the chambers we found a series of petroglyphs carved in a stalagmite. The analysis of these motifs indicated a link between these representations and the maya cosmovision, particularly with the water and the jaguar in its personification of the sun on its nocturnal journey and as the guardian, protector, and supernatural being of the forest and the caves. According to the ceramic's data, there exists evidence of occupation that dates from the Late Pre-classic to the Post-classic.
