Historical Background

Also known as Hunhau, he was the Maya god of death who ruled over Mitnal, the land of death, the lowest and most horrible of the nine hells. He was normally represented with the head of an owl on a human body. This figure of death has survived to this day, where the Indians of Central America and Mexico believe that someone will die when the owl screeches. In other representations Ah Puch is shown as a skeleton or a bloated corpse, adorned with bells. Mitnal. He is also referred to as 'God A'.

The Maya Death Gods, known under various names, belong to only two basic types, respectively represented by the 16th-century Yucatec deities Hunhau and Uacmitun Ahau mentioned by Landa. Hunhau is the lord of the Underworld. Iconographically, Hunhau and Uacmitun Ahau correspond to the Gods A and A'.

In recent narratives, particularly in the oral tradition of the Lacandons, there is only one death god (called Kisin in Lacandon), who acts as the antipode of the Upper God in the creation of the world and of the human body and soul. This death god inhabits an Underworld that is also the world of the dead. As a ruler over the world of the dead (Metnal or Xibalba), the principal death god corresponds to the Aztec deity Mictlantecuhtli. The Popol Vuh has two leading death gods, but these two are really one: Both are called 'Death', with only the prefixes ('One' and 'Seven') being different. They were vanquished by the Hero Twins.

The underworld is inhabited by many were-animals and spooks (wayob), with the two principal death gods themselves being counted among them. God A in particular manifests himself as a head hunter and a deer hunter.
