    Please help me! I have an unusual problem. I bought a blanket while I was in Tiawana , that was supposed to be the a replica of the Mayan calendar.
    When I got it home, it was actually a picture of a dead woman lying in front of a stepped pyramid while a kneeling warrior/king mourns at her side.

    I started looking for info then, and found nothing about this pair.

    Recently, a friend of mine gave me a tapestry, knowing of my affinity for mythology. And the same pair, (down to the warrior/kings headdress) are shown in this tapestry!
    Only in this one, the warrior is supporting the dead woman, as he steps onto a stone carved as Quezotcotal (the plumed serpent) (I have been able to positively identify that at least) So perhaps not a Mayan legend, but an Aztec.

    PLEASE, if anyone knows anything about these 2, let me know.

    My thanks in advance.

    PLEASE, if anyone knows anything about these 2, let me know.

    Thanx Alex... nope, not so much on the help part.
    I have studied alot of mayan legends, and maybe this pair is a representation of the gods you mentioned..., but I haven't seen anything that shouts out THIS IS IT!!! Maybe after work, if I remember I will take some pics of the blanket and tapestry and post them. (What a brilliant idea, shoulda done that off the bat.)

    You posted a poll asking about the sun god? So I thought it would be of use to let you know who the sun god was lol.. :)

    As for the art work... An image would help greatly :)

    O yes, right.
    I have a hunch these two may be Ix Chel (the moon goddess or LAdy Rainbow) and her hubby Itzamna (The god of the sun/creation). It's making me bonkers that I can't figure this out. I appreciate any and all suggestions and feedback.

    Actually, war suited the Aztecs. Their sun-god, Huitzilopochtli, was just one of many gods and goddesses who demanded bleeding hearts and human sacrifices on a regular basis. :eek:
