This figure represents the 'god of the flowers,' whose body is covered with tattoos in the form of flowers and to whom the gardens where dedicated by performing complex rites. The Aztecs fought wars known as "Guerras Floridas", which was a covenant between two or more neighboring rival communities, with the sole and only purpose of obtaining victims to sacrifice and offer them to the God Xochipilli, to symbolize the renovation of society and nature.
This god is the one being appeased in the movie "Apocalypto." The crops have failed and warriors are sent out to gather sacrificial victims. Another coin in the series, 'Guerrero Aguila' also relates directly to the story-line.
