Spotted above our parking lot yesterday:
|Éhecatl, puffing away|
If you don't see him, blow up the photo to full screen (left click, esc to return), and stand back. See him now?
And isn't he the spitting (or blowing) image of the Aztec portrait?
|Quetzalcoatl-Ehecatl, the god who moves the sun and the moon. (Wikipedia)|
|Detail of Ehecatl's breath.|
Éhecatl simply means "wind" in Nahuatl. It is pronounced with the short "e" (as in bet), and a short "a" as in paw: E - e katl. (For the "tl", start to pronounce a "t", quickly flatten your tongue into the "l" position, and stop. A bit of practice, and you can do it as well as an Aztec.)
