At www.pasthorizonspr.com/index.php/archives/02/2014/aztatlan-astronomical-… … ceremonial architecture at Aztatlan in Mexico is aligned to the Sun – recording the appearance of the solar disc on the eastern horizon, at the equinoxes. So it is assumed. However, there is frequent sculptural representations of Zipo Totec (the flayed one) a sun (like) god associated with the spring equinox. Are they right?

     At http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xipe_Totec … he is the Red Smoking Mirror, and the Night Drinker. He was the bloodthirsty Aztec god of war and the image above, to the right, might look innocent enough but Xipe Totec is carrying a bloody weapon (a knife or spear) and he is wearing the flayed skin of a human as a suit, with the hands of the victim hanging down and flapping behind him. Is it really posssible the Sun could behave like this?
