Description

Better known as the Mayan Calandar, its Aztec name is Cuauhxicalli (Eagle vessel). The Aztec calendar or sun stone is the most celebrated of all works of Aztec art. It was discovered by chance on 17th December 1790 during the paving of the main square in Mexico City, the capital of New Spain. Made in a monolithic block of basalt lava weighing 24.8 tons, it is 360 cm in diameter and 122 cm thick (142 inches x 48 inches), this olivine lava disc was probably a cuauhxicalli (altar and sacrificial vessel) or a temalacatl (gladiatorial sacrifice vessel). It was reportedly carved during the reign of Axayacalt to commemorate the ceremony of new fire in 1479 (date indicated at the top, in the centre, between the snake tails). The original is currently in the museum of Anthropology in Mexico City.
