Found in Cache 6 of Complex A in the Huitzilopochtli dedicated portion of the Templo Mayor, this seated pulque deity, was first identified as the fire god, Xiuehtecuhtli. Although this pulque statue exhibits a few of the quintessential representational elements of pulque deities, it also presents components attributed to other Aztec deities.
