Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

According to the guide books

"This is thought to be 18 Rabbit in a mask, a ruler later captured by the king Two Legged Sky of Quingua in AD 737' and kept prisoner for many years.  His hair is long and he has a goatee beard.  Although there is a wealth of detail on the front of the stela, the rear is of great interest as it is carved with full figure glyphs from which the dte AD 736 is visible.  The final glyph of the stela gives the figure of a bat, an emblem of Copan"
