Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name or status, Icnohuehue ("Humble Elder" or "Sad Elder," attested here as pertaining to a man) shows the head of a man facing toward the viewer's left. His head is tilted down, at an angle, and tears stream down from his eyes (providing the semantic indicator for "icno"). He is balding on top, but he had wavy, longish hair at the back of his head and a few bangs. His mouth is open; no teeth are visible. His cheeks show wrinkles (providing the semantic indicator for "huehue").
