This Late Classic monument at the Snite Museum of Art (2004.048; Taube 1992:fig.41b) depicts God L (Itzam Aat), the divine patron of trade and travel (http://atokovinine.people.ua.edu/uploads/9/5/0/6/95068638/people_of_the_road_traders_and_travelers.pdf). He is depicted with the symbols of his trade, a tumpline and a staff with a quetzal bird (its feathers were one of the most precious commodities in Mesoamerica). The other valuable resource, the cacao beans, likely fill the tumpline. The monument is attirubuted to the site of Dzehkabtun along with several similar sculptures. However, in a survey of Dzehkabtun epigraphy (https://www.academia.edu/4069735/Monumentos_de_Dzehkabtun), Nikolai Grube notes that there is no proof yet that the panels with God L actually came from Dzehkabtun. God L is certainly popular in Campeche and there are other carved representations of him including a panel in the Museo de la Escultura Maya in Campeche City (http://www.mesoweb.com/pari/publications/journal/902/PARI0902.pdf).
