The Legend of the Sun and the Moon

The shining brightness of bravery

The myth that is the foundation of the cosmogony of Mesoamerican cultures is based on a meeting of the Gods in order to create the Sun. To achieve this deserved sacrifice, it was necessary to throw oneself into a fire and burn, to regenerate life. Only one of the volunteer Gods had the bravery to fulfill the sacrifice, and he burned with intensity, creating the Sun.
