This skull has been discovered within a Mixtecs tomb for one of their kings and his sacrified servants.
The Aztecs used this kind of sculpture as funerary urn. The figure depicts characteristics of the deceased.
... being Mexico :3
Picture showing the ceiling inside the monastery of Santo Domingo de Guzmán. There is gold literally everywhere !!
This church and former monastery has an incredible ceiling with many details made out of gold. The rest of the complex is now a museum about the Aztec culture.
For what I have seen, this is a typical Mexican street. One or max two floors buildings, lots a colors, flowers and of course a piñata ;)
There are actually multiple aztec calendars. That one is called 'tonalpohualli' and in order to know what day is today you actually need 2 wheels with numbers and other symbols!
That tree has a diameter of 14 meters and is more than 2000 years old!
