ILAMATECUHTLI

Aztec Midwifery Goddess

Old Mother Goddess

The elderly version of CHICOMECCATL.

You should always be kind to old Goddesses. Especially this one with her large bared teeth.

She likes to live in a darkened chamber where she keeps captured images of Gods. Or she could just be a collector of antiques who doesn’t like paying.

She is also fond of fire festivals and likes burying bundles of reeds of enormous significance. We feel sure she will turn up one day in a Terry Pratchett Discworld novel.
