The Borgia Codex is the most famous of four pre-Colombian codices painted by Aztec Shaman scribes. The Borgia Codex features a page-by-page portrayal of the various divisions of the sacred 260 day calendar called the Tzolkin by the ancient Maya, and the Tonalpohualli by the Aztecs.

On page 56 of the Borgia Codex, illustrated here, two of the Central Mexican creator gods are depicted back-to-back over an upside-down mask representing the underworld. On the left, the skeletal god of the underworld, Mictlantecuhtli, holds a scepter formed from a pustule-covered human arm.

On the right, the long-beaked wind god, Ehecatl (associated with both Venus and the Feathered Serpent) wears the cut shell and cone-shaped hat that are among his principal attributes.

The Feathered Serpent was a prominent supernatural entity or deity. It is called Quetzalcoatl among the Aztecs, Kukulkan by the Yucatec Maya, and Q’uq’umatz and Tohil among the K’iche’ Maya.
