XAMAN-EK

Mayan Directions God

Also known as AH-CHICUMEK, AH-CHICUM-EK, KUH, CHUEN, XAMEN-EK, GOD-C

God of the North with a black monkey head

You may think there is worse to come — but no, he is all peace and benevolence. In fact he’s a God of Holiness and Godliness. A real God’s God.

His symbol is the North Star, used for guidance and direction, so he’s the one to call upon if you get lost. He’s also known as God C. C is for Copal Trees. His only indulgence, if you are offering, is incense from the resin of the copal tree.
