There were three major indigenous groups that created great civilizations in the New World: One was found in central Mexico, another in southern Mexico/Northern Central America, and the last in much of western South America. The Mexica or Aztec, the Mayan, and the Inca are represented and corresponding maps show us where they resided prior to Spanish contact. MexicanConnexionforTile.com ] #culture #Talavera #Mexican
Tlaloc (Tlá-loch) was the Aztec rain deity and one of the most ancient and widespread deities of all Mesoamerica. Tlaloc was thought to live on the top of the mountains, especially the ones always covered by clouds; and from there he sent the much needed rains. The rain god was a pan-Mesoamerican deity, whose origins can be traced back to Teotihuacan and the Olmec. The rain deity was called Chaac by the ancient Maya and Cocijo by the Zapotec of Oaxaca.
