View up the stairs of the Temple of the Warriors at Chichen Itza, Mexico with columns in front and a sculpture of Chac Moon at the top. "The temple also has a staircase that leads to a sculpture of a large Chaac-Mool located in front of two carved pillars dedicated to Kukulcan, serpent heads with opened mouths and rattles pointing skyward. This famous sculpture features a human figure reclining and holding a bowl on his stomach as if giving an offering. His head is turned to the side in almost a right angle, looking slightly heavenward. American Egypt says the two carved pillars show how the Toltec people influenced the Mayans. Chaac-Mool sculptures and stone statues appear throughout Mexico, thought to be a representation of an ancient god of the same name,"--Act for Libraries website.
