Coatlicue

Paris has their Mona Lisa, New York has their Statue of Liberty, and Mexico City has their Coatlicue. Standing nearly 9ft tall, in the central gallery of the Museo Nacional de Antropolog√≠a, a colossal basalt statue brings to life one of the central Aztec deities. This exhibit explores the Aztec Goddess Coatlicue in three parts:

  1. A summary of her iconography and relationship with another goddess, Cihuacoatl
  2. An interactive map of the renowned colossal Coatlicue at the Museo Nacional de Antropolog√≠a (MNA)
  3. A summary of her significance to the Aztec faith, relying on primary source accounts
