Two in One Creator God

Ometecuhtli and his wife Omecihuatl symbolize the duality and primordial forces of nature... and all that kind of thing. The entire universe is their temple, but most worshipers prefer somewhere a little more modest.

Their four sons Huitzilopochtli, Quetzalcoatl, Tezcatlipoca and Xipe Totec were also pretty big in the creation department. Often depicted as a half-man and half-woman figure, or vice versa. Could be an instance of Holy Transvestitution.
