According to the first interpretation, the engraving of this skull represents a headdress that resembles a reptile eye or a bird adorned with feathers. This representation indicates the importance of the character because the ornaments around the body, especially the head area define their position in a social hierarchy system. The headdress in ancient times was as important as a crown of precious stones for a European king.
