 Bonampak Structure 1, Room 3


Here the royal family celebrates by performing
autosacrifice after the battle depicted in room 2.
Those seated on the throne are all dressed as women,
but some scholars believe that one of these individuals
(the one on the right) is Chan Muan.
Other evidence from the Maya area indicate that men may
have adorned female clothing when performing autosacrifice.
