Tonatiu

 

Omecihuatl and Ometecuhtli original deities of the Toltecs universal duality, created Quetzalcoatl, Tezcatlipoca, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totec. In its turn, they created the earth and its nature, then created four consecutive ill-fated humanities.

Quetzalcoatl then went down to the infra-world to steal bone splinters to create the fifth humanity; throughout many years, opposing forces tried to stop him; at the end, old and poor, Quetzalcoatl, as an offering, throws himself into the fire to give life to the fifth sun and to the actual humanity.
