Rain God “Tlolac”

Published July 8, 2022 by tindertender

This belief in god is one of the oldest in Mesoamerica, all the peoples of ancient Mexico asked the god to strengthen the clouds, send rain. Its origins are said to be from Teotihuacán, where there are relics such as figurines referring to the rain god and a temple to his name. There may be an even older predecessor of Olmec culture. The Mayans knew him as Chaac, here is an impressive representation of “Tlaloc”, the Mexican god of rain and lightning. As can be seen from the jade sculpture, Tlolac is depicted as a Brazilian IGUANA with a swelled mane, and is made as a vampire with its teeth curled inwards.
