Guerra cosmica Huitzilopochtli vs Coyolxauhqui Picture

This is an illustration base on the mexica myth of the origin of Huitzilopochtli god and the cosmic battle against Coyolxauhqui godness.

In Mexica mythology, Coyolxauhqui ("golden bells") was a moon goddess. She was a daughter of Coatlicue and the ruler of the Centzon Huitznahuas, the star gods. She was a powerful magician and led her siblings in an attack on their mother, Coatlicue, because she became pregnant in a shameful way (by a ball of feathers). Coatlicue's fetus, Huitzilopochtli, sprang from her womb in full war armour and killed Coyolxauhqui, along with many of the brothers and sisters. He cut off her limbs, then tossed her head into the sky where it became the moon.
