The Mayans believed that blood was the drink of the Gods and that the people exist only to maintain the Gods. They believed that man was made from corn meal and that corn was the only flesh contained in the flesh of the ancestors.
In Maya culture the two main types of caches are utilitarian and votive. Utilitarian caches were used for either protection or storage and the intent was retrieve them for later use. Votive caches are purely ceremonial offerings and were left as offerings to one or more of the Maya gods.
