Omeciuatl
Mythic, worshipped by the Aztecs of Central America, 1248–1521

The Aztec creation goddess Omeciuatl (Omecihuatl) created all life on Earth with her husband, Ometecuhtli. Together they were seen as the male and female aspects of a single "Lord of Duality," Ometeotl. As the androgynous Ometeotl, they ruled over the home of the gods, called Omeyocan ("Two Place").
