ITZAM-CAB

Mayan Earth God

Also known as ITZAMCAB

Fiery God of Earth with underground tendencies

He is the earthy aspect of ITZAMNA and likes to get his hands dirty lurking in the dirt.

But it’s not all gloom and mud — he is also a fire god. His limbs are made of firewood and his tongue is a naked flame. Presumably he sticks it out a lot to impress people.

As an earth god with fire aspects we imagine he likes to tinker with volcanoes on a Sunday afternoon. There’s no smoke without fire.
