Bodies , Paradise, and Tumblr: ZITZIMITL <p><a href="http://nathanandersonart.tumblr.com/post/121323771254/name-tzitzimitl-roughly-pronounced-zee-zee-meel" class="tumblr_blog">nathanandersonart</a>:</p><blockquote><p><b>Name:</b> Tzitzimitl (roughly pronounced Zee Zee Meel)<br/><b>Area of Origin:</b> Central Mexico; The Aztecs<br/><br/>In Aztec Mythology, A Tzitzimitl (plural: Tzitzimimeh) is a female deity associated with the stars. They were usually depicted as skeletal figures, often wearing skirts and decorative headdresses. In the most famous depictions, adorning their bodies are severed hands, and cut-out hearts, and appear to have pointed claws on both their hands and feet. Another odd detail is that they seem to have eyeballs growing out of different joints, such as the ankles, knees, wrists and elbows, though this differs between the different portrayals. They’ve been decribed as demons, though this doesn’t necessarily reflect their function in the Aztec belief system. Because the Tzitzimimeh were female, they were also related to fertility, and as such associated with other female deities such as Tlaltecuhtli and Coatlicue. They were worshipped by midwives and women in labor. Their leader was the goddess, Itzpapalotl who ruled over Tamoanchan, the paradise where these deities resided. Being associated with the stars, when stars would not be seen in the sky during solar eclipses, this was intepreted as Tzitzimimeh attacking the sun. This caused a belief that during an eclipse, they would descend down to earth to devour humans. They were seen as both protectors of the feminine and progenitors of mankind, and as such, were powerful and dangerous, especially in periods of cosmic instability.<br/></p></blockquote>

Memes, Cracked, and Death: Jurors Recommend The Death Penalty For Man Who Tortured and Murdered His Girlfriend's 8-Year-Old Son @balleralert Jurors Recommend The Death Penalty For Man Who Tortured and Murdered His Girlfriend’s 8-Year-Old Son - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last month, 37-year-old Isauro Aguirre was convicted of first-degree murder, four years after his girlfriend’s 8-year-old son died from repeated abuse. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gabriel Fernandez was found inside his Palmdale home on May 22, 2013, with a cracked skull, broken ribs, burned skin, missing teeth and BB gun pellets in his groin area, LA Times reports. During Aguirre’s trial, prosecutors detailed the abuse Fernandez suffered at the hands of his mother and her boyfriend, Aguirre. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fernandez was forced to eat cat feces and his own throw-up. The couple also made the young boy sleep in a cabinet with his hands and ankles bound. Prosecutors also revealed Fernandez was punched in the face so hard that it tore the skin from his chin and nose. Two days after officials found Fernandez in the home, the little boy died from his injuries. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Wednesday, Aguirre’s penalty for his conviction was read before the court. Although the defense asked for a less severe sentence, as Aguirre suffers from a learning disability, the jurors voted on the death penalty for the brutal murder and torture of Gabriel Fernandez. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the LATimes, Fernandez’s case also led to criminal charges against L.A. County social workers, since they left Fernandez at the home after six investigations into abuse involving his mother, who is also charged with murder.
