Xipe Totec rose to prominence in the Aztec pantheon, and was also worshipped by such cultures as the Zapotecs, Mixtecs, and Toltecs.

The blood, which dripped down, was meant to symbolize the spring rains that fertilized the earth. This was reserved for captives who displayed the most courage on the field of battle. The victims were bound up on a circular platform and forced to fight either an eagle or a jaguar warrior - the elite troops of the Aztec Empire.
