Huehueteotl "the Old God" stone figure

This seated stone figure depicts the Aztec deity, Huehueteotl.  The item was excavated in 1981 near the Red Temple, during the excavation of the Templo Mayor in Mexico City.  Huehueteotl is closely related to the god Xiuhtecuhtli and their names are often combined.  In addition, the figure shares iconography with Tlaloc.  The dual nature of this figure may be examined through the iconography of the stone figure and an examination of the location from which it was excavated.
