To earn the title of Jaguar Warrior, a member of the Aztec army had to capture a total of four enemy soldiers during combat. Capturing opponents was said to honor their gods far more than simply killing enemy soldiers on the battlefield.

ocelotl ring symbolism

Ocelotl Warrior – Dressed to embody the jaguar god Tezcatlipoca, the Ocelotl believed that wearing the jaguar pelt lent him all the apex predator’s prowess in battle.

Turquoise – Prized above even gold, the Aztecs believed this stone had healing properties that would bring strength, prosperity, and success in battle.

Lip Plug – Only the greatest warriors were given a chalchiuhtentetl by the emperor himself, a decorative turquoise stone lip plug.

Tonatiuh – The Aztec Sun God. Featured on the shanks, he appears as he does on the Aztec calendar—with his obsidian tongue sticking out, demanding a sacrifice.

Under Gallery – A temple atop an Aztec pyramid, beneath the rays of the sun. The double-headed snake is a representation of the feathered snake god Quetzalcoatl.
