DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

According to an Aztec legend, Yappan was a very pious man, who though fell tempted. As a penence, the Gods turnt him into a scorpion, that hides his shame by crawling under the rocks. And Yaotl, who killed him, was turnt into a cricket; and that´s why still today scorpions hunt crickets, in order to seek revenge.

The scorpion symbolizes danger, determination and hidden and subterranean things.

This Aztec styled scorpion was requested by Gigi.
