Ehecatl - God of wind.

Ehecatl

Ehecatl ("Wind") is a God of winds and a creator god, he is also associated with all the cardinal points. He symbolised fertility and human breath. He is seen as an aspect of the Feathered Serpent deity (Quetzalcoatl). His breath caused the sun and moon to move and drive away the rain.

He is said to have created the present race of humans, the earth, and the heavens. He fell in love with a mortal maiden, Mayahuel, who he had brought from the underworld. Where the two made love a tree grew, and the sound of the wind in the trees represented Ehecatl's desire. Temples dedicated to Ehecatl were made circular with a cone-shaped roof.
