Quirigua Zoomorphs - Pollen around the Eyes

Note the eye of Zoomorph P, the eye is an "X" which is associated with the Bee god. Is that a representation of pollen around the eye? The eyelashes seem to have a beaded appearance.

Quirigua, Guatemala.

Zoomorph P, note the eye and the beaded eyelashes, does this stand for pollen around the eye of a bee?

Quirigua Zoomorph B, it was originally painted red.

Zoomorph B Quirigua, Guatemala. The Earth monster has "X"s for eyes, is that pollen around his eyes?
