IPTC INFO
CaptionCoatlicuethe Mother of the Gods was impregnated by a falling ball of down while ritually sweeping a temple. Her daughter Coyolxauhqui incited her brothers the Centzon Huitznahua the Four Hundred Stars to destroy Coatlicue because her pregnancy brought disgrace on the family. Still in the womb Huitzilopochtli swore to defend his mother and immediately on being born put on battle armor and war paint. Just before the mob of warriors reached the top of the serpent mountain Coatlicue gave birth to Huitzilopochtli as a full grown warrior. Huitzilopochtli cut off Coyolxauhqui's head and threw it in the sky to become the Moon. Coyolxauhqui's decapitated body rolled down the mountain to lay dismembered at the bottom. Huitzilopochlti then triumphed over the remaining siblings and lay claim to his title as God of War.
