Coatlicue

Coatlicue (/kwɑːtˈlkw/; Classical Nahuatl: cōātl īcue, Nahuatl pronunciation: [koːaːˈtɬíːkʷe] ( listen), “skirt of snakes”), also known as Teteoh innan (Classical Nahuatl: tēteoh īnnān, pronounced [teːˌtéoʔ ˈíːnːaːn̥], “mother of the gods”), is the Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, and Huitzilopochtli, the god of the sun and war. The goddesses Tocih “our grandmother”, and Cihuacoatl “snake woman”, the patron of women who die in childbirth, were also seen as aspects of Coatlicue.

How an Image Never Dies Catlicue is an Aztec Goddess she was the symbol of creation and destruction. She was also know as the mother of Gods and Mortals. Her appearance was intimidating. Her face is a two fanged serpents and her skirt is of interwoven snakes, the necklace is made out of hands, hearts, and skulls, and her fingers and tows are claws. Catlicue is know as a different image today known as the Virgen De Guadalupe (The Virgin Mary). But Guadalupe is also know as the mother of Jesus Christ. The only difference is her kindness and reassurance for the people. The beginning of the bled between two cultures. Till this day their images are stronger then ever to my people.
