Tlaloc

   From Aztec mythology, the god of rain and fertility. He has tusk-like teeth, rings around his eyes and a scroll emerging from his mouth. The rings around his eyes represented snakes, which are associated with rain in Mexican mythology. He lived with Chicomecoatl in a paradise called Tlalocan. Those who died from lightning, dropsy, skin diseases and those sacrificed to Tlaloc, went to Tlalocan.
