Mayan god of sun
Mayan Sun God
Also known as HUNAPHU, HUN-AHAU, HUN-AHAW, HUN-APHU, HUN-NIK, HUNAPU, GOD-S
Sun God and mighty football player
Not to be confused with HUN-HUNAHPU his father, he’s one of the HERO-TWINS, being XBALANQUE’s older brother.
After having amazing adventures in the Underworld, HUNAHPU was elevated to become the Sun God while his brother XBALANQUE became the Moon.
Helpful note: for all those confused by the sheer number of Vucubs, Huns and Hunahpus in our Mayan database, here’s a little assistance:
’Hun’ (which is pronounced "hoon") means ‘One’ or ‘First’.
’Hunahpu’ means ‘Blowpipe-User’ or simply ‘Hunter’.
Vucub’ means ‘Seven or Seventh’.
So HUNAHPU is the Hunter, his dad HUN-HUNAHPU is the First Hunter, and his Hunting Uncle VUCUB-HUNAHPU obviously had a thing about sevens.
