Chalchiuhtlicue, Goddess of the Waters, originally stood in the plaza in front of the Pyramid of the Moon at Teotihuacan. This massive figure seems to reflect the strict geometry and sense of order that characterized the structure of the city itself. The forms are also related to those of the great stone monolithic figure from the Andean center of Tiahuanaco which we saw earlier. (See #12 left prc03c44.jpg). The two works are roughly contemporary.
