Aztec Wind God

Aztec Wind and Weather God

Archaeologists cannot make up their minds whether he resembled a duck (raining ducks and drakes) or a monkey (monkeying with the weather). We’ve scrutinized many statues of him and still don’t know the answer. All we know is that he always looks very pleased with himself.

But he’s really just another form of QUETZALCOATL, so all bets are off.
