Aztec dancer, day of the dead celebration

Aztec dancer

Ilazki is the Basque Goddess of the Moon. She is the daughter to Lur, the Goddess of the Earth, and sister of Eguzki, Goddess of the Sun. As the light of the night, Ilazki was believed to give light to the souls of the dead, and graves often had pictures of the moon on them. It was believed to be most favorable to die when the moon was in its first phase, so that the soul of the deceased would grow as the moon did. Ilazki’s name, means “light of the dead."

Shaman. There's something dark about those long, sharp horns. I love it. I wonder what culture this is.
