Additional Information: Mayan artifact carved from limestone into form of human skeleton standing on the tips of its toes and top of its head, which are in close proximity because its spine is twisted backward with its hands holding it knees. This backbend position exposes the cavity inside the chest. The open slots between the ribs provide drainage conducive to the artifact's purpose. The artifact was a receptacle for a human heart excised during ritual human sacrifice to consecrate the altar of a temple.
