During the course of excavation at Templo Mayor a stone Chacmool figure was discovered. First appearing in the Valley of Mexico in the 9th century, the Chacmool form depicts a reclining figure with its head facing 90 degrees from the front. The figure is usually supporting itself on its elbows while holding a bowl or a disk upon its stomach. These figures possibly symbolized slain warriors carrying offerings to the gods and the bowls upon the chest were used to hold sacrificial offerings.
