AJ K'AX B'AHLAM'S headdress is made from stiff material with the head of a long-lipped deity attached to its front. Pottery scenes often show secondary lords regularly wearing this kind of headdress. The long-lipped deity wears a black-tipped feather in his headgear. Such feathers are associated with both owls and hawks.
