The Maya Death Gods, known under various names, belong to only two basic types, respectively represented by the 16th-century Yucatec deities Hunhau and Uacmitun Ahau mentioned by Landa. Hunhau is the lord of the Underworld. Iconographically, Hunhau and Uacmitun Ahau correspond to the Gods A and A'. In recent narratives, particularly in the oral tradition of the Lacandons, there is only one death god (called Kisin in Lacandon), who acts as the antipode of the Upper God in the creation of the world and of the human body and soul. This death god inhabits an Underworld that is also the world of the dead. As a ruler over the world of the dead, the principal death god corresponds to the Aztec deity Mictlantecuhtli. The Popol Vuh has two leading death gods, but these two are really one: Both are called 'Death', with only the prefixes ('One' and 'Seven') being different. They were vanquished by the Hero Twins. The two principal death gods count among the many were-animals and spooks inhabiting the Underworld, with the God A way in particular manifesting himself as a head hunter and a deer hunter.

Goddess Malinalxochitl Image
IN AZTLAN, THE AZTECS HAD BEEN RULED BY A POWERFUL ELITE GROUP OF GODS CALLED " AZTECA CHICOMOZTOCA"; THE SUPREME LEADER WAS "HUITZILOPOCHTLIM, "BUT HE EVENTUALLY GREW TIRED OF HIS HUMAN SUBJECTS AND TOLD THEM TO LEAVE WITH HIS SISTER. AND SO IT WAS THAT WHEN THE AZTECS TRAVELED TOWARDS THE SOUTH FROM THEIR HOMELAND OF AZTLAN, UNSURE WHERE THEY WOULD BUILD THEIR CITY, A WOMAN TRAVELED AMONG THEM CALLED "MALINALXOCHITL".

SHE WAS SAID TO BE VERY BEAUTIFUL...BOTH IN FORM AND MANNER BUT THERE WAS AN EVIL SIDE TO HER. SHE COULD DRIVE MEN MAD, SHAKE A RIVER FROM ITS COURSE, OR STRIKE HER ENEMIES DEAD JUST BY LOOKING AT THEM. OR SOMETIMES SHE WOULD TWIST A SOMEONE'S VISION SO THAT THE PERSON THOUGHT THEY WERE SEEING A HUGE BEAST OR SOME HORRIBLE MONSTER. FOR A TIME SHE RULED THEM ON THEIR WANDERINGS, HER FLESH AND BLOOD GUIDANCE COMPLEMENTING UNSEEN "HUITZILOPOCHTLIS "DIRECTIONS IN DREAMS AND HER MAGIC A FORMIDABLE FORCE ADDED TO HIS STRENGTH.

SOMETIMES, DURING THE DARKNESS, WHEN THE PEOPLE WERE ASLEEP, SHE WOULD TAKE A MAN OUTSIDE OF THE CAMP AND TOSS HIM IN FRONT OF A POISONOUS SNAKE. AND BECAUSE SHE WAS A WITCH, SHE COULD TRANSFORM HERSELF INTO ANY BIRD OR ANIMAL SHE WISHED. WITH ALL THESE DANGEROUS POWERS, SHE WANTED TO BE TREATED LIKE A GODDESS, AND NOTHING LESS WOULD DO. THE AZTECS ALLOWED HER TO LIVE AMONG THEM BECAUSE SHE WAS THE SISTER OF THE GOD OF WAR, H"UITZILOPOCHTLI", BUT EVENTUALLY, THE PRIESTS COMPLAINED. THE AZTECS HAD GROWN TO RESENT THEIR FEMALE RULER..."

"..."MY SISTER IS A GRAVE THREAT TO YOU. YOU SHOULD END ALL RELATIONSHIPS WITH HER AND HER WITCHCRAFT. TOMORROW NIGHT, WHEN SLEEP FIRST COMES TO HER, YOU SHOULD MOVE QUICKLY AND SILENTLY, LEAVING HERBEHIND. MY DESTINY IS TO GOVERN NOT BY WITCHCRAFT BUT BY THE STRENGTH OF THE ARROW AND THE SHIELD, OF THE CHEST AND SHOULDERS."

"MY COMMANDS WILL BE OBEYED IN ALL THE LANDS AND I WILL GUARD OVER YOU AND PROTECT THE PEOPLE SO THEY LIVE WELL, SO THE MEXICAN NATION FLOWERS ITS NAME RISING TO THE HEAVENS. OUR CONQUEST WILL BRING TO US JADE, GOLD AND FEATHERS OF ALL COLORS WHICH WILL BE USED TO DECORATE MY TEMPLE. IT WILL ALSO BRING US CORN AND CHOCOLATE OF DIFFERENT TYPES, AND COTTON OF DIFFERENT COLORS. I WILL HAVE EVERYTHING.

"HUITZILOPOCHTLI" ORDERED THE PEOPLE TO LEAVE, AND HE PUT HIS SISTER TO SLEEP. ACCORDING TO AZTEC, MYTH, THE CAPITAL CITY OF "TENOCHTITLAN" WAS FOUNDED ON THE BURIED HEART OF "COPIL, MALINALXOCHITL'S "SON. COPIL," KILLED BY THE MEXICANS ON ORDERS FROM "HUITZILOPOCHTLI", WAS SYMBOLICALLY, IF NOT LITERALLY, THE FIRST VICTIM OF AZTEC HUMAN SACRIFICE; HIS HEART WAS THROWN INTO THE MIDDLE OF LAKE TEXCOCO.

Goddess Polyhymnia Image
POLYHYMNIA (pronounced pol-ee-HIM-nee-ah) is the Greek Muse of hymns, eloquence, and mime. The nine Muses are the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and they accompany Apollo in his role as God of the arts. She is usually depicted as quite serious, resting an elbow on a pillar, and sometimes with a finger to her mouth. She wraps her gown around herself in a very modest fashion. Her name, which means "many hymns," is also seen as POLYMNIA or POLUMNIA, and the epithet FAMED was used to describe her.
