Huitzilopochtli, the Aztec God demanding human sacrifice. The bird-god of war, sun, and south.
A VIDEO ARTICLE w. original music by DJ Balli

Once the Central God of War in Aztec religion, Huitzilopochtli was represented as a bird or as a feathered, black-faced guy holding a snake-shaped scepter and a mirror.

He was the God of Sun and South.

During his holy month, decorations, ritual races, processions, dances, songs, prayers, and of course human sacrifices were held in his honour.

After putting the victim on a special stone on top of a pyramid, the priest would extract his beating heart and hold it facing the Sun.

His body was then burned, eaten, or given as a present to important people.

The Aztec calendar divided time in 52 years cycles called Xiuhnelpilli.

The end of each cycle was considered troublesome, because the previous World might end and only Gods like Huitzilopochtli could save it from destruction.

The next Xiuhnelpilli will end in 2027. If I were you, I’d start building a pyramid and catch some prisoners…
