Cháak is one of the most revered of Mayan gods. In the Yucatán he is the top dog of gods so to speak. He is the god of agriculture, fertility, rain and lightning.
He is often represented as a reptilian creature with fangs and a droopy snout, his hair permanently knotted in a tangle of confusion. With his lightning axe he strikes the clouds and produces thunder and rain. He sends the rain into the world by weeping from his large benevolent eyes.
