 Maya ruler pendant found to be very realistic

Listeros,

A bone pendant portrait of Maya ruler Ukit Kan Lek Tok of Ek Balam who
ruled from 770-801 CE has been found to be a very realistic portrait
of the ruler in his later years. The deviated jawbone and broken lip
in the pendant have been confirmed by an analysis of the rulers
remains. He had 3 severe dental infections and his right mandible
suffered bone loss affecting his {*filter*} symmetry.

The ruler's tomb was found with 21 vessels and 7000 jadeite, shell,
bone and pyrite pieces and a golden frog pendant.
