The moon is one of the principal symbols of Yaxper, whose principal cult image is kept in a cofradía house nearby. She is the patron deity of weavers who in Atiteco myth wove together the framework of the world. The knotting of the twisted ropes and subsequent decoration of the monument represent the weaving of the cosmos on her loom.
