Aztec Suns
Petersen, Hugh
Arts & Activities, v148 n3 p36 Nov 2010
The Aztec Sun Stone is a revered Mexican artifact. It is said to be perhaps the most famous symbol of Mexico, besides its flag. It primarily depicts the four great disasters that led to the migration of the Mexica people to modern-day Mexico City. The Aztec Sun Stone also contains pictographs depicting the way the Mexica measured time, and was primarily a religious artifact. In this article, the author describes how his sixth-grade students created their own imaginative suns using scratchboards.
