In 2006, a massive monolith of the earth goddess Tlaltecuhtli was discovered in an excavation at the Templo Mayor in Mexico City. The monolith, which still retains its original polychromy, measures 4.17 by 3.62 m and weighs 12 tons, making it the largest Aztec sculpture ever discovered.
The sculpture, carved in a block of pink andesite, presents the goddess in her typical squatting position. The stone was broken into four pieces by the weight of a colonial building that once sat above it. Reassembled, one can see Tlaltecuhtli's skull and bones dress and the river of blood flowing from her mouth.
Though most renderings of Tlaltecuhtli were placed face down, this monolith was found face up. Clutched in her lower right claw is the year glyph for 10 rabbit (1502 CE). Lopez Lujan noted that according to the surviving codices, 1502 was the year that one of the empire's most feared rulers, Ahuitzotl, was laid to rest. Just below this monument, Offering 126 was found, a huge dedicatory deposit containing 12 thousand objects.
After several years of excavation and restoration, the monolith can be seen on display at the Museum of the Templo Mayor in Mexico City.
