CHACMOOL: a Mesoamerican life-sized sculpted stone figure representing a reclining human with the head turned to one side, knees drawn up, and hands holding a shallow receptacle flat on the stomach. This was a widespread art form in the Post-Classic period, especially at the Toltec sites of Tula and Chichen Itza and at Aztec and Tarascan sites. It was located at the entranceway to temples and was probably a repository for offerings.
