The "flayed god" of the Aztecs, he was a god of agriculture and vegetation, who skinned himself to provide mankind with food. He was also seen as the god of penitential torture, and sent such illnesses to man as smallpox, plague, scabs and blindness. He, like most of the Aztec gods, had a great interest in Mictlan, the underworld.


The Aztec fire god, he assisted the spirits of the deceased in their absorption into the earth.


The Aztec god of flowers and lord of souls.


The Aztec goddess of the flowering and fruitful surface of the earth.
