Yum Kaax Mayan god

July 13, 2017 – 10:20 am
Kinich Ahau, God of the Sun

He’s a promising youngster with a trendy corn headdress, but is always getting into fights with bad weather, famine and drought.

Due to codex confusion, for many years YUM-KAAX became synonymous with the Maya maize deity known to scholars as God E. They must have been thinking of Vitamin E. Maize is full of goodness, and his name does sound like a breakfast cereal. (Try a bowl of nutritious Yummy Kaax today!)

As protector of the forest and guardian of wild plants and animals, YUM-KAAX is invoked by farmers and hunters who depend upon his goodwill. Little carvings or other gifts are the usual way to get on his good side.

He is usually depicted holding a small pot of maize plants and looking extremely displeased about something. Probably that unfortunate business with the breakfast cereal.
