Recreate a gruesome ritual of the Flower Wars with this Aztec Sacrifice set! Priest, victim, attendants, and more to outfit your pyramid! This Aztec Sacrifice set allows for multiple diorama style projects including a heart sacrifice to huitzilopochtli, the Aztec God of the Sun and War, as well as the New Fire ceremony.
The New Fire Ceremony was conducted once every 52 years at the completeion of a cycle of the Aztec "Calendar Round." Fires and hearths throughout the Aztec world were snuffed out. Priests took a captive to Huixachtlan (an extinct Volcano east of Tenochtitlan where there was a temple specifically for this ceremony), and when the constellation Orion (which the Aztecs called the "fire-drill") rose above the horizon, a captive was sacrificed.
In the chest cavity of this sacrificial victim, a fire was started. This was then transferred to a bonfire, and runners would distribute the new flame to every temple and home in Tenochtitlan.
