Blog That Glyph! 2009, No. 1: Potsherds from Chichen Itza

"These images are from potsherds taken from the Cenote Sagrado in the 1967-68 expedition. The last image contains several glyphs. The last visible glyph to me looks like a person with their knees drawn up. Is that what it is? And if so, what does it mean? I would be interested in interpretations of any other glyphs on the fragment as well."
