Tlazolteotl Aztec And Toltec Goddess Of Filth Image
"TLAZOLTEOTL" WAS CALLED THE MOTHER OF THE GODS; SHE WAS PRESENT DURING THE CREATION OF THE WORLD. SHE IS THE AZTEC AND TOLTEC GODDESS OF FILTH; IT IS SHE WHO CONTROLS PESTILENCE, SIN, AND DISEASE; SHE ALSO RULES OVER SEXUAL MISCONDUCT SUCH AS ADULTERY AND RAPE. SHE IS THE ULTIMATE DARK MAIDEN, THE ONE WHO NOT ONLY INSPIRES SIN, BUT ALSO CLEANSES IT AWAY FOR SHE IS A PURIFICATION GODDESS AS WELL...THE ONE WHO FORGIVES THE SINS AND MISDEEDS CAUSED BY OTHERS. SHE IS ALSO SAID TO BE A GODDESS OF THE EARTH, SEX, FERTILITY, AND CHILDBIRTH.

HER NAME IS DERIVED FROM THE NAHUATI WORD "TLAZOLLI "WHICH MEANS "OLD, DIRTY, AND DETERIORATED; IT WAS ALSO USED TO CONNOTE FILTH. THE SECOND PART OF HER NAME, "TEOTL, "SIGNIFIES A DEITY. HENCE, SHE IS THE DEITY OF FILTH.

SHE IS THOUGHT TO BE A PLURAL GODDESS AND IS ASSOCIATED WITH A FOUR-PART SISTERHOOD SAID TO REPRESENT FOUR SISTERS, EACH OF A DIFFERENT AGE AND NAMES

"XOCOTZIN "IS THE YOUNGEST OF THE SISTERS; SHE IS THE ADOLESCENT...INNOCENT IN SOME WAYS YET CRUEL AND UNRELIABLE IN OTHERS; YET MANY STILL CONSIDERED HER THE ADORABLE ONE.

"TLACO" IS THE YOUNG WOMAN, THE MAIDEN...SENSUAL AND FULL OF ADVENTURE...READY TO TEST HER WILD OATS AND THAT SHE DID FOR HER MORALITY IS SAID TO BE NON-EXISTENT.

"TEICU "IS THE SECOND ELDEST OF THE SISTERS. SHE IS THE WITCH GODDESS, THE ONE WHO PURIFIES THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO CONFESS. SHE IS ASSOCIATED WITH MENSTRUATION AND CHILDBIRTH; SHE BLESSES MARRIAGES AND BRINGS PEACE AND FERTILITY TO THE LAND.

"TIACAPAN "IS THE OLDEST AND THE ONE WHO IS MOST UNFORGIVING IN HER PUNISHMENT. IT IS SHE WHO BRINGS ABOUT ALL THE DISEASES; BUT,SHE IS ALSO THE ONE WHO CAN CURE THEM IF SHE SO CHOOSES.

"(TO THE RIGHT IS A STATUE OF TLAZOLTEOTL GIVING BIRTH. KIND OF SCARY LOOKING, ISN'T SHE? BUT A VERY, VERY POWERFUL GODDESS IN HER DAY.*)"

THE AZTECS INVOKED TLAZOLTEOTL AT A NEW BIRTH TO CLEANSE THE BAY OF HER PARENTS SINS, AND THE OLD AND TERMINALLY ILL WOULD SEEK HER OUT TO CONFESS THEIR SINS FOR SHE NOT ONLY ENCOMPASSES ILLICIT LOVE, OVERINDULGENCE, AND PROMISCUOUS BEHAVIOR, BUT ALSO IS THE PARDONER OF THOSE WHO ENGAGE IN HER EXCESSES. THIS ABSOLUTION...WHICH UNLIKE THE CHRISTIAN PRACTICE OF CONFESSION, COULD BE GIVEN ONLY ONCE IN A LIFETIME.

"*NOTE: WOMEN USUALLY SQUATTED WHILE GIVING BIRTH DURING THE DAYS OF THE AZTECS; HENCE, THE SQUATTING POSITION OF TLAZOLTEOTL."
