Interesting Hand Made Mexican Terracotta Aztec Sun God Figurine
The Aztec people considered the Sun God as the leader of Tollan (heaven), and believed that he required human sacrifice, at the height of the Aztecs power up to 20000 people a year were estimated to have been killed to appease him.
This version of the God looks very benign, perhaps he is satiated from all the blood letting, and now just needs a quite corner in which to retreat from the modern world............Splendid in form he is very detailed, from his head dress down to the toes on his feet, he would make a great coffee table ornament, or a great accessory in any Southwestern decor.
