An unusual carved shell pendant from the base of the 3rd level of Danta pyramid, El Mirador, found by archaeologist Sheryl Carcuz and drawn by Brianna Hansen.

The pendant had apparently been worn horizontally, with the face of the “bird” image looking upward towards the wearer. Two drilled perforations on the “chest” of this bird creature suggests a that it may have been hung in this fashion (Photo: R.D. Hansen).
