Mictlantecuhtli (Miclantecutli) Mythology

The god of demise and lord of the north to the Aztec in Mexico. His colour was pink. Mictlantecuhtli dominated the underworld (heart of the Earth), the place these not destined for heaven had been despatched to reside in everlasting boredom. With his spouse, Mictlancihuatl, he lived in a home and watched out for the souls of the lifeless. He could also be one of many earliest Aztec gods, and a few students imagine he was related to Tezcatlipoca.

At the start of the Aztec Fifth Sun, Quetzalcoatl got here into the underworld to steal the bones of those that had died on the finish of the Fourth Sun. Mictlantecuhtli was so angered on the theft that he despatched a flock of quail after Quetzalcoatl, however Quet- zalcoatl was too swift and escaped the underworld with the bones.
