Goddess Tlalteuctli


Tlalteuctli: Aztec goddess of the ground.

Tlalteuctli is the earth's Dark Mother, the fertile soil that both feeds and embraces life.

After she was attacked by fellow deities, pieces of her dismembered body were used to create the world.

To worship Tlalteuctli, the Aztecs buried human hearts in the ground and sprinkled blood on the land.
