EAGLE-MAN

A very impressive ceramic ceremonial sculpture found in the Temple of the Eagle Warriors.

Having seen the over life-size original, we feel it was not just made to serve as an amusing artifact. The temple housing the eagles is north of the Templo Mayor in Mexico City. The Eagle Warriors were a military order who went into battle in aid of the sun, probably to capture sacrificial victims.

The EAGLE-MAN or men, as there were two of them, were only discovered in 1980. Perhaps one was a substitute or a stand-in. Or with the Aztec love of dual personalities, perhaps a twin God. Or maybe it was just one they made earlier.

The exact identity of EAGLE-MAN has not yet been uncovered. But whoever he is, he is certainly larger than life.
