Large shell handcrafted dangle earrings Coyolxauhqui Moon Goddess print
Legend has it that Teteo Innan Coatlicue whilst sweeping at her temple Coatepec caught some hummingbird feathers in her bosom and was thus impregnated. Coyolxauhqui, She-with-the-bells-on-her-face, noticing that her mother was now pregnant called on her sisters The 400 Centzon Huitznahuac (the stars) to avenge the effrontery. Upon sensing the danger to Coatlicue, Huitzilopochtli rose fully armed with the Xiuhcoatl, and decapitated Coyolxauhqui throwing her from the top of the temple Coatepec and falling broken and dismembered to lie a the bottom of the hill, where her effigy was found in 1978.
