On Pakals Tomblid: Ancient Palenque, Incredible Mayan King Pakals Sarcophagus. In the jaws of the “earth monster” with the bird on top of the tree.
Quote: “K’inich Janaab’ Pakal was born on March 23, 603 AD, the son of Lord K’an Mo’Hix and Lady Sak K’uk’, the then reigning Queen of Palenque. Pakal, whose name means Shield in the Mayan tongue, was crowned king by his mother on July 29th, 615 AD, shortly after his 12th birthday.”
This short writeup tries to identify the symbolism used in the tomblid and compare it to an identical image, albeit slightly different listed in the Codex Borgia and proof the ancient astronaut theory is false information, putting the tree of life on its side, falsely identifying the squirs of blood for “rocket fumes”
His tomb lid, falsely identified by Erich von Daniken and others in the last 40 years as a rocket ship which has fed the ancient aliens enthusiasts, is actually, the cosmology world tree. When one sees the image of the codex Borgia, one can clearly start to see the similarities and the individual details. Also, because its slightly different with added symbolism it is possible to clearly decode the tomb lid.
Let us start by identifying the image and the individual characteristics of both images and dissect them.
- The general shape is in that of a cross, or letter T
- You see two serpents in it on pakals tomblid (These are “makara’s” like the aztec sun disk but thats for another paper) on the cross section of the cross, each pointing another direction, away from each other.
- A man lying horizontally at the bottom, with two “squirts” coming from his body
- A monster / mouth under him
- A round “face image” on each side of the bird on pakals tomblid
- A figure on each side of the Codex Borgia Image, not present on Pakals tomblid in this shape. (but in round faces on top)
- Ceremonial knives on the Codex Borgia image as found in the mexico museum of Anthropology. This is very important detail as this is missing on the Pakals tomblid image. (Images of the obsidian ceremonial knives attached, Photo by: JJ ainsworth.)
On the Codex Borgia on clearly sees the streams being red. It’s a person being sacrificed. Why? If one knows one can clearly see the ceremonial knives.
Due to having the knowledge of the ceremonial obisdian knives, one could clearly identify the figure on Pakals tomb as a sacrificial victim with streams of blood squirting from his body. No “rocket fumes”. One would also put the image the right way up, a bird sits on top of a tree/pole and never vertical on a tree/pole.
The image is not the only occurrence besides the Codex Borgia. It also occurs on”The Temple of the cross” in Palenque. That gives us even more information due to it again being slightly different but obviously the same in the same breath.
If one looks at the above image, it starts to become extremely familiar. Why, because a similar image also appears in ancient Sumeria. Also “with a bird” on top.
We assert here the mayan image is the world tree or tree of life and that the exact same concept and depiction was shared between the Sumerian civilization and the Mayan civilization.
The zoroastrian symbol
Thagt is actualy derived from the sundisk with the two cobras from egypt. (Also depicted as the bird Horus)
And this in turn to Garuda clasping the snakes or the mexican eagle grasping the snakes on top of the cactus. Its and direct link to the two snakes on the sides of the asian pyramids and the aztec sundisk as highlighted in my Makara research paper. Link provided below.
Next to each other these similarities are quite striking. I will leave this here and continue with the tree of life Symbolism.
The mayans knew the tree of life. For them it was the Ceiba or Kapok tree. With its torny trunk, because of their links to the aligator tree, as seen in Izapa Stele 25.
Cultural relations between Sumeria and Mayans are thus proven as per exact same global symbology. Tree of life (cross) with bird on top.
This symbolism is astronomical in nature relating to the constellations, stars and the sun moving through the y earsand NOT astronautical in nature.

In other cultures. The bird/dragon symbolism highlighted here has also been discussed in my Makara research paper.
