The story of creation on QuiriguaStela gives us the most detailed information about the first moment. The text describes the first event as the “appearance or manifestation of an image” . Here the image that appeared was of three stone-settings described as a jaguar throne stone placed by the Paddler Gods at a place called Na-Ho-Chan, ‘House (or First or Female) Five-Sky’; a snake throne stone set up by an unknown god at Kab-Kah, ‘Earth-town and a water or ocean throne stone set up by Itzamna
Quirigua, Palenque, and other sites, the scribes specified further that the place where these stones were set was“Lying-down Sky First Three-Stone-Place,”(Ch’a-Chan-Yax-Ox-Tunal).
.David Freidel and Schele, who were working on these concepts, immediately presumed that the three stones referred to the stones of a Maya hearth. Not only does a hearth always have three stones in it, but they are arranged in the same triangular pattern as the glyph for Yax-Ox-Tunal. Furthermore, as Matt Looper pointed out, Dennis Tedlock(1985) had identified the lower triangle of stars in Orion—Alnitak, Saiph, and Rigel—as the three stones of the hearth. At the 1992 Workshop on Maya Hieroglyphic Writing,Barbara Tedlock further added that theK’iche’ call Orion Je Chi Q’aq’, ‘dispersed fire’
The cosmic hearth was not the only image generated by creation according to the ancient texts. Another inscription published in Mayer (1991) says that “on 4Ahaw 8 Kumk’u, was seen the first image of the turtle, the great divine lord”
This turtle is the double-headed turtle that cracks open for the rebirth of the Maize God and like the cosmic hearth can be found in the sky. Because the three stars on the turtle’s back match the belt of Orion, Schele(1992) believes the turtle to be located there
From the late Post-Classic Paris Codex back in time to the Pre-Classic San Bartolo murals, god D (Itzamna) has the so-called Principal Bird Deity The bird often holds a bicephalous snake in its beak. Its head sometimes resembles that of a rain deity; at other times, it is more like that of a bird of prey, perhaps the laughing falcon believed to be a harbinger of rain. The wings are repeatedly inscribed with the signs for 'daylight' and 'night', suggesting that the bird's flight could represent the unfolding of time.
He represented the fertility that lies at the bottom of the underworld as well as the minerals and vegetal produce of the earth. He was carried on a boat known as the Henu-barque which had the form of a the crescent moon. His stellar manifestation was that of Orion.
The agrarian calendar perfectly defines the liturgy: the onions planted at the end of September and picked at the end of October are heralding the arrival of the light and are going to be transplanted in the land to be ready to be chewed at the time of the festival of Bastet, February 5th, as all snakes come out of their hibernation and when the swallows begin to return announcing the summer sun. The small onions, early fruits and vegetables, inhaled to receive a new breath at the time of the ntryt-night, having germinated during the winter period, become witnesses to a source of rebirth to a chthonian life, with the image of a living Sokar in a cave and carrying the solar star in the Duat. The solarisation or light created the 25th and 26th of Khoiak leads to a stellar design (or darkness with appearance of the constellation of Orion).
"This is a stone pyramid about ten inches high. It was found in the 1980s in the jungles of Ecuador, and this and other artifacts are referred to as La Mana artifacts.
Five symbols engraved into the base of the pyramid stone in "Pre-Sanskrit" language:
"The Son Of The Creator Comes From Here ..."
The inlaid dots, coincide with the constellation of Orion.
- Why is the exact same 13-stepped pyramid with the all-seeing eye all over the world, but always lacks the reference to "The Son Of The Creator"? From, presumably, Orion? Hello?

I suspect those are hoax artifacts, and really quite uneccesary as mainstream academia accepts the interest of the Maya in Orion as an important aspect of their creation mythos.
“the biggest cover-up in the history of mankind is the history of mankind itself”
"Throughout recorded history, the Illuminati has successfully withheld from humankind major aspects of history and science in order to subjugate the masses"
By manipulating the souls evolving on earth, the Illuminati have deliberately suppressed the spiritual facts of life, not to mention liberating technologies, which could bring plenitude to all.
Secrets of Suppressed Science and History
“There are two histories: official history, lying, and then secret history, where you find the real causes of events.” ~ Honoré de Balzac
"The model of human prehistory built-up by scholars over the past two centuries is sadly and completely wrong, and a deliberate tool of disinformation and mind control. ...they demonstrate a systematic destruction of proofs that show another reality than that the official story. Falsifications and even destruction of such proofs has been common for more than two hundred years." LINK
"...the Illuminati eventually controlled the science departments in all colleges and institutions of higher learning. The plan was to stifle scientific knowledge and then twist what was left to fit the science they wanted the people to believe. They accomplished this by adopting new rules in regards to scientific research.

I'll outline here what seems to me a very great mystery, arguably THE greatest, it concerns correspondence between Mayan and Old Kingdom Egyptian creation myth
What correlation would this be?
Depending on the time period --AND the location-- the Egyptians believed that
* the universe was created from a self-created deity (Atum)
* the world emerged from a lifeless sea
* Eight deities created the universe
Faulkner: A ‘ferryman’ text
O Kherty of Nezat, ferryman of the ‘Ikht-bark which Khnum made, bring me this, for I am Sokar of Rostau
(r.st3.w), I am bound for the place where dwells Sokar who presides over Pdw-s.
There are two sources of textual references to the Abusir lake. The earliest reference
occurs in utterance 610 (§1712) of the Pyramid Texts as a title or epithet of Sokar, “Sokar who presides over the Pdw-š” (Faulkner 1969, 253), where Pdw- š is interpreted as the “lake of Abusir” (Gaballa and Kitchen 1969, 5, n.6). Secondly, New Kingdom and Late period texts cite toponyms from the Memphite Necropolis in association with the sanctuary of Sokar, which is most likely to have been at Saqqara
(Posner-Kriéger 1976, 71, n.1). Thus, the notion of a lake at Abusir was derived from the translation of the title or epithet of the god Sokar
Also, I'm familiar enough with Egyptian artifacts to be able to read some of the texts. I don't see anything about the birds in the image that you posted that's similar to what the Egyptians used.
