in a nearby village, bleeding out, a kindly potter called to the frightened grissled Putre, before a march of stalwart guards searching for our gollumn friend. the kind potter remade the muscles and missing tissues from clay, a vacuous but noble and kind facade, returning humanity to a leperous and voiceless ‘fiend’.
… exposition and conversation; lots about fingers rubbing and shaping the skin giving meaning to the skeleton. … “i can’t leave my family” …

Hun Came and Vucub Came (One Death and Seven Death) are the principle death gods of the Mayan underworld, Xibalba.
Ixtab was the Mayan Goddess of suicide. For mayans, suicide was a honorable way to die, to clean up your sins or mistakes in life, to purify your soul of all regrets, a clean passage to eternal rest. Ixtab was the guide to the suicidal souls, she was also the guide to warriors dead in battle or women dead during labor (giving birth), this souls were taken by Ixtab directly to Yaxchá, the mayan tree of life.
