Coyolxauqui (Aztec Lunar Goddess)


During construction in Mexico City in 1978, a large shield-shaped stone relief was found that led to the discovery of the Templo Mayor. The disc shows a dismembered figure of Coyolxauhqui, the Aztec lunar goddess.

She was a powerful magician and led her siblings in an attack on their mother, Coatlicue. In revenge she was killed and dismembered, and her head tossed into the sky where it became the moon. Our quality reproduction is made of stucco in Mexico and measures 8.5” dia. Item is boxed.
