Aztec Underworld - Mictlantecuhtli

Boo-boo, boogy-boogy, it's underworld time! The silly religions of today that claim deities from the flaming underground abyss, are not the only ones who had special characters down below. Many of us get tired of hearing about the cartoon figure known as "satan," "devil" or "lucifer" and we just need to change it up a bit.

The main boogy-boogy man in this post, is from Aztec mythology and this lovely being goes by the name "Mictlantecuhtli" which simply means "Lord of Mictlan." The Aztec Underworld has 9 layers, the deepest being Mictlan, and is ruled & dominated by the precious, dear Mictlantecuhtli.

This particular underworld tyrant was one of the primary gods of the Aztecs, with worship & rituals sometimes involving cannibalism along with other ill-minded, sick, freaky, flesh-eating acts of insanity that often transpired in or around the sacred temple of asininity.

Below, I'll provide a depiction of the tyrannical, despotic Aztec Underworld hero that goes by the name, which is a joy to spell, "Mictlantecuhtli"......

---The divine woo-woo of wooism says, "Boo-boo!"
