The Young Moon Goddess

She is the beautiful young wife of Kinich Ahau. Not much has been revealed about her – she might just be a young manifestation of Ixchel.

She often poses with the cuddly Rabbit of the Moon, although this looks more like someone’s holiday snaps or a cheesy selfie.

We are not sure what the rabbit’s name is.
