Figure 1. The Fifth Sun of World Age - created at Teotihuacán - is ruled by Tonatiuh, the sun: «the soaring eagle (quauhtleoanitl), the turquoise prince (xipilli), the god (teutl)» (FC, Book VIII: 1).

In the center of the so-called Aztec Sun Stone the face of Tonatiuh is seen surrounded by the signs of the previous destroyed eras simbolising their days and ways of destruction: Ocelot, Wind, Rain (of Fire), and Water. The Fifth Sun - the present age - will be destroyed by earthquakes.
