The Coyolxauhqui Stone is a fascinating piece of Aztec history, dating back to the mid-15th century when it was carved from one piece of stone measuring 3.4 meters in diameter. Depicting Coyolxauhqui in a dismembered pose, it was likely used in the temple to warn enemies of the Aztec Empire. It is believed that female deities would die first in battle, and Coyolxauhqui came to represent all defeated enemies. The stone was discovered in 1978 at the site of the Templo Mayor of Tenochtitlan, where traces of original color in blue, white, red, and yellow were found. As one of the best-preserved pieces of Mesoamerican Art, this stone holds significant cultural and historical value.
