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").
