AZTEC MYTHOLOGY

The bloodthirsty Gods of Ancient Mexico

TLAHUIZCALPANTECUHTLI

Aztec Dawn God

Also known as TLAHUIXCALPANTEC, TLAHUIXCALPANTECUHTLI, TLAHUIZCALPANTECUTLI

God of Dawn and the Morning Star

Just keep the curtains drawn.

An aspect of QUETZALCOATL, he was a bit of a quetz when he wasn’t being a total coatl.

He is Lord of the Twelfth Hour of the Day. What this signifies we have no idea. Aztec Codex writings are plentiful, but excavations have not yet revealed an Aztec Timex.

Never mind. He is God of the Dawn. He used to be warm and friendly, but after shooting an arrow at the sun to teach TONATIUH a lesson, he received one right between the eyes and became the cold and stony ITZTLACOLIUHQUI.
