Ixtab

Ixtab.

Ixtab, or Rope Woman, was the Yucatec Mayan goddess of suicide according to Diego de Landa.

In Yucatec society, under certain circumstances, suicide, especially suicide by hanging, was considered an honorable way to die. Ixtab would accompany such suicides to paradise; thus playing the role of a psychopomp.

Here, joined by people who died as soldiers or as sacrificial victims, by women who died in childbirth and by members of the priesthood, they enjoyed a delectable existence rewarded with delicious food and drink and resting under the shade of a pleasant tree, Yaxche, free from all want.
