Cast in our signature ring mold from high-grade stainless steel, this ring is modeled after the Aztec display of human skulls, otherwise known as Tzompantli.
Tzompantli was a rack of skulls that was used as a warning to enemies and served as a reminder of the power of the Aztec empire.
The wall was constructed with wooden posts and crossbeams, and the skulls were tied or nailed to the wood. The tzompantli was usually located near the temple of Huitzilopochtli, the god of war, and it is thought that the skulls were dedicated to him.
It served as both a warning to enemies and a reminder of the power of the Aztec empire.
In addition to being a symbol of strength, the tzompantli also represented the cycle of life and death. The skulls on the tzompantli were those of sacrificial victims, and their deaths ensured that the sun would rise each day.
For the Aztecs, the tzompantli was a powerful symbol of life and death, and it played an important role in their religious beliefs.
