Portrait of the "caporal" (leader) who stays at the top

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

He was the "caporal", the main dancer.
The hat is adorned with flowers for fertility, mirrors represent the sun and from the top stream multicolored ribbons representing the rainbow. The five "birdmen" represent bird deities. The main dancer stands in the center and plays a flute, which represents the sound of birds singing. The four other "birdmen" (representing the four directions) spin around the pole to represent the recreation of the world (and the regeneration of life)
