Bat Gods

Postby spider » Mar 31, 2015 6:40 pm

A friend of mine is considering devoting his life to the service of Camazotz, the Mayan Bat God. Is there anything particular he should know? Are there any other bat gods he should consider?

I took your query to the Great and Knowing Wikipedia and learned of Leutogi, a princess-saved-by-bat-piss-turned-bat-goddess.
Howbout that?

Camazotz was a bad-ass, and it's tough to compete with that. He, (or his minion bats, legends differ) lop off heads as a sort of "rite of passage" from what I gather. I'm no scholar in these matters, but I think a real god has to be feared a bit.

Here he is:

Notice the eyes of death in his wings. Iconography of this and other Mayan deities can be seen by searching the data base at:
