I'd love to hear you pronounce that. :))
Anyway, she is an Aztec Goddess of love, beauty, youth, lakes, rivers, seas, streams, horizontal waters, storms, and baptism. She was also a patroness of childbirth. Her name means "She who wears a Jade Skirt".
She was represented as a river from which grew a prickly pear cactus laden with fruit, symbolizing the human heart.
Depicted in her "human" form, her headdress consisted of several broad bands that in all probability were made of cotton and trimmed with amaranth seeds. Large round tassels fell from the goddess's headdress.
Chalchihuitlicue was viewed as a beautiful lady whose clothing is that of a noble woman, which consisted of an extravagant shawl adorned with tassels and a green skirt.
The position of kneeling shows that she is a symbol of fertility for both women and the land.
And I'm combining this goddess with 29 Faces challenge.
