This Aztec Calendar Stone is a 11 1/2 inches in diameter and was made in Mexico of Terra Cotta. It is in VERY GOOD - EXCELLENT Condition !! There is a string through two holes at the top for easy hanging on your wall !!

The Aztec Calendar is one of the most readily identified symbols of ancient Aztec culture, if not of Mexico City itself. And while it won’t remind you of birthdays anymore than most useless Google calendar widgets, there’s still a lot to be learned from this particular analog calendar.

Discovered some 200 years ago, the Aztec calendar stone establishes a close, unique and comprehensive relationship between mythology, astronomical movement and calendar chronologies based on mathematics. At 24 tons, it was a little too heavy to carry and was literally buried beneath the Zocalo until it was rediscovered in 1790.

Most ancient civilizations pursued astrology with a passion. Studying the position of the stars in the skies can give you some understanding of their effects on Earth. These effects usually take place within a given interval. They may also define primary tasks that may or may not be performed during that interval.

The observation of astral movements were performed from multiple, highly precise spatio-temporal points. Among all of these, the Aztec calendar helped to delineate rainy seasons from dry, and those ideal for the practice of war.  The stone also has religious significance. It’s referred to as “the Sun Stone” for the face in the center, often said to refer to Tonatiuh, the Sun God of the Aztecs. Of course, the stone can also be interpreted as a symbol of political and geographic significance as it clearly refers to the cardinal points of the compass, and thus to Tenochtitlan as the center of the empire, if not of the entire world.
