Temacxochitl (MH771v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black, white, and red drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Temacxochitl (perhaps "Flowers in Someone's Hands") is attested here as a man's name. It shows a left hand (maitl) holding two red flowers (xochitl). Both flowers have three petals, and one of them has two anthers showing. The one on the viewer's right has a longer stem, and it bends over. The Te- start to the name is not shown visually.
