ABOUT THE AZTEC CALENDAR SUN STONE AND THIS MEDALLION The Aztec Calendar Stone medallion design pays tribute to the legendary Aztec Calendar Stone carved by Aztec artists in 1479. In 1790 during renovations of the Central Square in Mexico City a massive carving was unearthed. It was the Aztec calendar stone, or, more properly, the Cuauhxicalli Eagle Bowl. It is a massive carving, 3 feet thick, almost 12 feet across, and weighing over 22 tons. It was carved from basalt - a solidified lava, this being an area where volcanoes were common. The famous calendar stone is a brilliant combination of artistry and geometry. It reflects the Aztec understanding of time and space as wheels within wheels. The detailed surface of the stone combines the understanding of the gods the people had created over the centuries as well as their observations of the heavens.
