CUAXOLOTL

Aztec Fertility Goddess

Also known as Cuaxólotl, Quaxolotl

Doubly confusing duality Goddess

She appears to be a manifestation of Chantico the Fire Goddess, although there are several conflicting opinions flying around in the exciting world of Aztec Obscurology.

Her name means ‘Head of Xolotl’ and she is assumed to be the female counterpart of Lightning God Xolotl with bonus fertility extras. Come on baby light my fire?

Her name can also signify ‘Split at the top’ and her image depicts two heads – she wears a Xolotl mask on the back of her own head. Perhaps this indicates duality or twins or even possibly even some kind of bipolar activity.

So far neither of her heads has answered our emails. If you can think of a better explanation please drop us a line.
