Yeah, one o' the very very few Chalchiuhticue paintings/drawings/watever I make kinda "detailed" (ya see I'm lazy, or stupid yet).
Chalchiuhtlicue: prehispanic water Goddess, Tlaloc's wife, she reign on the seas, lakes and rivers. Hurr hurr. Her name means something like "the one with the precious jade skirt". And remember jade was in prehispanic times, a really valuable thing. Only for teh elite and gods.
This is b-day present for my dear friend

Data about this painting.... Well the weird simbol on the upper part it's a pot with water emerging from it. It appears in the Fejérváry-Mayer codex, where its'a symbol between Tlaloc and Chalchiuhtlicue. Eh the so-called sculptures in the sides are based on the designs o' Tlaloc pots.
Yes, watercolor on special illustration cardboard.
