Aztec Gold

Another history lesson... The Aztecs, once a nomadic tribe, were wandering throughout Mexico in search of a divine sign that would indicate the precise spot upon which they were to build their capital. Their god Huitzilopochtli commanded them to find an eagle devouring a snake, it was found after two hundred years of wandering. This motif is now the on the mexican coat of arms.
