I realized school was bullshit when they said the Aztecs were savages and extinct. But then down play that Europeans would throw their shit out the window and didn't take showers.... The mexika bloodline continues. Those greedy powerful men may have fucked up all the world, but they can't take our people's dignity.
Build in silence, battle in silence, reclaim in silence. Don't watch what I say but what I do 👀

Here’s a little ditty I did a few years back where I reimagined Icarus after he flew too close to the sun
I wondered, what would it have been like if Icarus had met his destiny and achieved airborne “samadhi,” flight goggles permanently melted to his face? Or even if he flew too close to the sun, as is clear from the mythological record, might he not have achieved a kind of reincarnation as something more than that which he was? Though his face would have revealed the scars of the sun’s intense heat; like a caterpillar morphing into the butterfly it will become, Daedalus’s son would have eventually emerged like a rock star, and with the great daring & hubris of his achievement, perhaps even becoming something like the ancient Egyptian sun deity, “Ra,” or even the Aztec sun god, Tonatiuh himself
It’s hot out there, get to the beach if you can and submerge before your sunglasses permanently melt to your own face 🌞. Of course, it’s nothing that a cool tall glass of water and a frozen margarita with salt can’t cure 🍹. See you out there

irradia como el sol, fluye como el agua
Gracias padre #tonatiuh
por otro dia. Por la luz y energia solar que nos sostiene dia con dia sin discriminar. 🙏🌞
how about something like this? I still have to work all the pieces... Had to step it up a bit since sky is the limit... just kidding. I like it a lot. The beads are the biggest I have, they're Onyx. In between them are #Mictlantecutli
heads sticking their tongues out. 2 #Quetzalcoatl
heads bring the sides of the piece together and down to #Tonatiuh
where I'll do a double tap in which will make the necklace wear and look better.
I stopped taking orders cause people are having me build the same thing over and over cause that's what they see. If I can do what I want I have the freedom to change it up as see fit. Breaking the chains that bind me will allow my creativity to flow.
Tonatiuh (el luminoso, el que calienta) “Tonatiuh, el Verbo de San Juan, el Logos o Demiurgo creador del universo, con su lengua triangular de fuego, es el niño de oro de la alquimia sexual, el sol espiritual de la media noche, el águila que asciende, el resplandeciente dragón de sabiduría, y se representa por el brillante astro que nos da vida, luz y calor. Decorado a la manera náhuatl aparece glorioso en el centro de la gran piedra solar

Pra quem sempre me pergunta o significado dessa tatuagem: “O novo astro que surge no centro do Calendário Azteca brilhou sobre o mundo no dia em que o povo Azteca, antes nômade e selvagem, descobriu o lugar sagrado anunciado pela profecia e fundou a Cidade do México. No dia da fundação dessa cidade, Tonatiuh - o quinto sol - derramou, do alto dos céus, sua chuva de luz e ouro. México nasceu para cumprir uma missão universal. Mientras exista mundo, existirá la grandeza de México, diz o poema Nahuátl: ENQUANTO EXISTIR MUNDO, EXISTIRÁ A GRANDEZA DO MÉXICO. 🇲🇽✨🌞 #tb #throwback #méxico #azteca #calendárioazteca #tonatiuh #nahuatl #inktattoo
Pyramid for the movement of the Sun.. Massive pyramids were also considered Watery mountains as many structures were used as water filters and rain collectors.. #teokalli #tonatiuh #fifthsun
☀️ remember to look up, because that's your limit, infinite... if the only blessing you reveive today, is seeing and feeling today's sun rays and the breeze; then You have succeeded another beautified gift.. live in the moment. #lifeisgood
This fifth and final sun will die, like every sun before..
CIPACTLI MERGES WITH THE SUN.
