Many of the objects and scenes painted on Maya pottery deal with the concept of the creation of the universe. This group of four objects, three spheres and a flat disk, reflects the Maya concept of the beginning of time and symbolizes the hearth of creation at the center of the universe. Two dates appear on the disk, both of which are mythological, suggesting that the events associated with these dates are not of this world. The sphere with a jaguar is placed in the center. This assemblage may have been in the tomb of a royal woman who was given the three hearthstones and comal to accompany her on the journey into the other world.
