Several years later, in the temple of San Andrés, I watched a woman decorate a carved wooden doll. She spread beeswax around the edge of the doll’s skirt and decorated the doll’s face, heart, and hem with beads. The doll was to be left in a field as an offering for abundant crops. The woman’s husband cut layers of brightly colored crepe paper to make paper flowers, which were then tied to the horns of a bull calf.

For example, Durán described an Aztec idol of Tezcatlipoca that carried “a round plate of gold, shining and brilliant, polished like a mirror. . It was called Itlachiayaque, which means Place from which He Watches” (1971, 99).
