This Maya art panel is a carved stone relief that depicts a ceremony celebrating the retirement of King Pakal’s military chief. The chief is shown with his parents, of royal blood, as they are shown presenting him with offerings of important emblems of social status. The details from the relief highlights the chief's accomplishments as a superior warrior. He is seated on a throne of human captives, which in Mayan culture was a symbol of his great warrior success. During the period of King Pakal's reign, Palenque reached the height of its development and expansion. This is also a time Pakal expanded Palenque's power in the western part of the Maya states, and initiated a building project at his capital that produced some of the finest art and architecture of the Mayan culture and civilization.
