The Aztec calendar consists of two calendars, one for a day count (tonalpohualli) and the other for a year count (xiuhpohualli). The xiuhpohualli was for agricultural purposes and telling them the best time to plant their crops, and the tonalpohualli was the religious calendar and told them when to consult the gods. This painting is unique in the Dowdle Folk Art collection in that it is Eric's only round painting and puzzle.
