Description
Depending on your point of view, there are three images of death; a skull, a predatory bird, and a jaguar. The hacha represents the three Mesoamerican realms: death and the underworld, life and the land of the living, and the heavens of the ancestors and the gods. Archaeologists believe the notched hacha type was used as a ballcourt marker.
