Has the evolution of the great Axólotl taken place? no, it’s our friends at Camote Toys give you more of their signature monsters, gods and myths, revaluing Latin American identity, through art toy with their latest creature. Latin American Kaijus are ready to take over!
Legend tells that, during the creation of the Fifth Sun, the gods sacrificed themselves in Teotihuacan to give movement to the sun and the moon. However, one of them, Xólotl, Quetzalcóatl’s twin brother, refused to take part in the ritual and decided to flee. To hide from Ehécatl, the wind god in charge of the sacrifice, he used his abilities as a nahualli to hide among cornfields and magueys, but he was discovered each time. Finally, he took his last form in the lakes as an axolotl, where he was captured and killed as a tribute to humanity. The day has come for Axolotl, the water monster that embodies the god, to wake up and claim the offering for his sacrifice along with the other Latin American Kaijus.
