Coatlicue is the Aztec goddess of fertility. She has two serpentine heads, clawed hands and feet, a dress made out of serpents, and wears a necklace of hearts and hands. She is said to have become pregnant "without sin" by placing a ball of feathers in the hem of her dress. Her son by this virgin birth was Quetzlcoatl. Her second son was Xolotl.
She was slain by her daughter, Coyolxauhqui, who banded together 400 of her other children and decapitated her. Her youngest son, Huitzilopochtli, rose fully grown and killed Coylxauqui and several others. In other versions of the story, it is Huitzilopochtli who was born from the ball of feathers, fully grown and just in time to save his mother's life.
