K'inich Janaab' Pakal was a Mayan ruler of the was a Mayan ruler of the
ruling, Pakal was responsible Pre-Classic Mayan Civilization.  While his  68
years or for the construction or extension of some of Palenque's for the
construction or extension of some of Palenque's most notable surviving
inscriptions and monumental architecture.

Before his name was deciphered from Maya inscriptions, this ruler has been
known by many nicknames and approximations, common ones including Pakal
(or Pacal), "Sun Shield", "8 Ahau", and (familiarly) as "Pacal the Great".

Pakal ascended the throne at age 12 on July 29, 615, and lived to the age of
80. The name Pakal means "shield" in the Maya language.
When Pakal came into rule, he saw the opportunity of expansion
and Palenque's power in the western part of the Maya states. Pakal
initiated a building program at his capital that produced some of
Maya civilization's finest art and architecture.The large carved stone
sarcophagus lid in the Temple of Inscriptions is a famous piece of
Classic Maya art.  The commonly accepted interpretation of the
sarcophagus lid is that Pakal is descending into Xibalba, the Maya
underworld. Around the edges of the lid are glyphs that represent
the Sun, the Moon, Venus, and various constellations, locating this
(Pakal descending) event in the nighttime sky.

Below him is the Maya water god, who guards the underworld.  
Beneath Pakal are the "unfolded" jaws of a dragon or serpent, into
whose mouth Pakal descends. This is a common representation of
entering into the underworld.  Enthusiasts have come to focus on
this sarcophagus lid since it's mention in Von Däniken's 1968 best
seller, "
Chariots of the Gods?"  Von Däniken re-produced the image
that was found carved into the sarcophagus (he mentioned that it
was from Coban; however, this is a false fact) and comparing
Pakal's pose to that of the 1960's Project Mercury astronauts.  Von
Däniken beings to interpret drawings underneath Pakal as rockets,
and saying that this is evidence of extra-terrestrial interaction on the
ancient Maya Civilization.   

Image 1.3 - To the Right

In the center of the picture is a man sitting (Pakal), bending forward
[1]. He has a mask on his nose, which is said to help him breathe[2],
and he uses his two hands to manipulate some controls [3], and the
heel of his left foot is on a kind of pedal with different adjustments
[4]. The rear portion is separated from him; he is sitting on a
chair/seat which seems to have an array of complicated objects, and
outside of this whole frame, you see a little flame like an exhaust [5].
