In Aztec mythology, Mictecacihuatl is Queen of Mictlan, the underworld. Her role is to keep watch over the bones of the dead. She presided over the ancient festivals of the dead, which evolved from Aztec traditions into the modern Day of the Dead after synthesis with Spanish cultural traditions. She is said now to preside over the contemporary festival as well. Mictecacihuatl was represented with a defleshed body and with jaw agape to swallow the stars during the day.
