GOMEZ PALACIOS, Ricardo. Maya Headdreses in Political Speech. A Case of Study of Waterlily Serpent Headresses during the Late Classic. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2020, vol.55, pp.151-181.  Epub 09-Dez-2020. ISSN 0185-2574.  https://doi.org/10.19130/iifl.ecm.55.2020.0006.

This paper focuses on the study of Maya headdresses as indicators of social identity during the Late Classic period. The study is centered in the Water Lily Serpent headdress, which were used by the Kanu’l dynasty and its allies during the 7th century. I propose that three types of this motif were associated with the Kanu’l dynasty, while a fourth was related to the rulers of Dos Pilas. However, at the end of the Late Classic period the Water Lily Serpent headdresses were locally adapted in some other Maya dynasties with the intention of legitimize their position at the top of the regional sociopolitical hierarchy.

Palavras-chave : Maya headdresses; Kanu’l dynasty; Water Lily Serpent; iconography; political network.
