Icel Huetztoc (MH624r)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Icel Huetztoc (or Icelhuetztoc, "Alone He Lies Fallen") is attested here as a man's name. It shows an unclothed man's body stretched out at an angle, in profile, facing toward the viewer's right. He is alone (icel) and looks vulnerable. His short arms are in front of him, as though bracing for the fall (huetztoc).
