A mythical monkey graces another ceramic tamale-bowl lid from the Maya royal tomb found in Guatemala.

Other finds in the tomb include globs of organic material that may be feathers, wood, and honey.

“Since they appear in a royal tomb, they may provide direct insights in the political economy of the divine kings that likely involved tribute and gifts,” Markus Eberl, an anthropologist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, said via email.
