Called from the ancient origins of Aztec culture, Tlaloc the rain god gave mercy to those who worshipped him as a giver of life and sustainability. The Gods weren’t, however, always merciful. To the ancient traditions and tribes, Tlaloc was feared for punishing mortals with drought or sending terrifying storms to the earth to cause havoc and force starvation upon the lands. Towering at 8” high, this crowned deity comes with the traditional Aztec symbols and frightening fangs to be a striking addition to any Dunny collection. Limited to 800 pieces.
