Ometochtli: Aztec God of Pulque & Drinking

1 Attachment

Ometochtli (or 'Two Rabbit' in Nahuatl) is one of 400 rabbit gods (the Centzontotochtin) in the Aztec pantheon, all having to do with inebriation. The illustration came about while I was doing some brand research for a mezcaleria I'm creating an identity for in Mexico City. I think I may turn this into a poster series of either Aztec gods, or gods of inebriation... possibly both.

The design is inspired by Aztec artwork of this same rabbit deity and built around golden ratio circles. You can see how they play out in the attached file.
