Jungle Housekeeping for a Geographic Expedition 327 A Deity Walks on Water, and a Jaguar Crouches, on These pre-Columbian Shrines Leaning over a carved bowl on the vertical stela is a grotesque god, whose feet are serpents standing on wavy water in which fish are swimming. On his back he carries a large jar. The altar in foreground portrays a crouching jaguar, with head in front and legs at the sides. Mrs. Stirling stands by the monuments, at Izapa.
