One of the most important gods to the Maya was Viracocha, the god of action, shaper of many worlds, and destroyer of many worlds. He created people, with two servants, on a great piece of rock. Then he drew sections on the rock and sent his servants to name the tribes in those areas.

Whoever carved this wanted us to know that Viracocha didn't look like everybody else.

Viracocha, as the feathered serpent god, is one of the great mysteries of ancient American cultures. He was called Kukulkan by the Mayas, Quetzalcoatl by the Aztec, Viracocha by the Incas, Gucumatz in central America, Votan in Palenque and Zamna in Izamal.

Viracocha, like Quetzalcoatl, is described in many forms – human and a god. Both were sometimes described as a Caucasian, a bearded man in some writings, with white skin, hair on the face and beautiful emerald eyes in others wearing long white robes and sandals, carrying a staff, with a cougar lying at his feet.  I think one of the most interesting aspects of this is that he was depicted as being Caucasian!  He walks among the Maya some 3,500 years before Columbus landed in America and the arrival of the Spanish shortly thereafter.

Is Viracocha one of the last surviving Annunaki?
