Maya ball court towers,queen
the ancient Mayas built watchtower-style structures atop the ceremonial ball court (built around 864 A.D.) at the temples of Chichen Itza to observe the equinoxes and solstices...The bases of the structures — essentially, look-out boxes set atop the walls, each one with a small slit running through it ... confirmed that the sun shone through the slit-like openings when the setting sun touches the horizon at the winter solstice. The sun's rays also formed a diagonal pattern at the equinox in the slit-like openings, which are about tall enough to stand up in.

Lady of Kaan (koan/kohen/khan/goshen/kachina...)
Archaeologists in Guatemala have discovered the tomb of Lady K'abel, a seventh-century Maya Holy Snake Lord considered one of the great queens of Classic Maya civilization. The tomb was discovered during excavations of the royal Maya city of El Peru-Waka' in northwestern Peten, Guatemala... "People of Waka"  K'abel, considered the greatest ruler of the Late Classic period, ruled with her husband, K'inich Bahlam, for at least 20 years (672-692 AD), Freidel says. She was the military governor of the Wak kingdom for her family, the imperial house of the Snake King, and she carried the title "Kaloomte'," translated to "Supreme Warrior," higher in authority than her husband, the king.

...on Spring Equinox the Serpent's
shadow descends the stairs of the
Pyramid of Kukulkan, Chichen Itza.
the planting stick is called the coa=
Coatl(N/5 Tonalamatl)=Snake, e.g.,
hoe(E)howa(Anglo-Latin)=h/ch/cowa=coa= Coatl(N/5).
...while at Chichen i followed a
narrow gauge railway away from the center of the site and found myself
in front of a small stone temple
without roof, carved on the lintel
was a dragon with the sun ball on
its back positioned to receive the
sn's rays on the equinoxes, the head
and tail reserved for the solstices,
representing the 4 Movements/Naui Olin of Tonatiuh, the Sun.
the Cipactli(N/day one Tonalamatl)
Dragon, or, Imox, was very oriental
in style, what passes for a manga(J)=
cartoon today, but this dragon produced that effect carved in stone.
one of my first indications, before i
knew the Mayan were from, had left
from the Gulf of Ormuz, that the Globe had been hooked together East/
West for a long time, a product of
the Sea Age Navy Olin.
(N/verb)=whistle, play wind instrument, smelt metal(fuelle/fue/
flute). whistles were used to keep
score. towers may have been used
by the umpires. there was tribunal
where judges sat.
