This priest’s residence, 500m northeast of the Pirámide del Sol, is home to Teotihuacán’s most famous fresco, the worn Paradise of Tláloc . The rain god Tláloc is shown attended by priests, with people, animals and fish nearby. Above is the sinister portrait of the Great Goddess of Teotihuacan , thought to be a goddess of the darkness and war because she is often shown with jaguars, owls and spiders - underworld animals. Look for her fanged nosepiece and her shields adorned with spiderwebs.
