According to Mayan mythology, there was an evil god called "Seven Macaw". He was not really a god, but an advanced being whose power came from metal. Yet he set himself up as a god and made the people worship him. Seven was described to be deformed, one of the wooden people. When a pair of brothers, the heros of the story, finally killed him, they first took the metal from his eyes, rendering him powerless. Then they took the metal on his body and his teeth, finally killing him.
