The Aztec calendar is the calendar system that was used by the Aztecs as well as other Pre-Columbian peoples of central Mexico. It is one of the Mesoamerican calendars, sharing the basic structure of calendars from throughout ancient Mesoamerica.

The calendar consisted of a 365 day calendar cycle called xiuhpohualli (year count) and a 260 day ritual cycle called tonalpohualli (day count). These two cycles together formed a 52 year "century," sometimes called the "Calendar Round." The xiuhpohualli is considered to be the agricultural calendar, since it is based on the sun, and the tonalpohualli is considered to be the sacred calendar.

The calendric year began with the first appearance of the Pleiades asterism in the east immediately before the dawn light.[Wikipedia]

  • jon  - beautiful model, but may I mak a request
    Is is possible to get an alternate version of this model without the writing on the base? I'm talking about the 2012 stuff. It would look wonderful on with my collection of mayan pottery, but the lettering is a distraction. Thanks, Jon
  • Anwar  - An observation...
    This is not a mayan calendar, it is aztec.
  • Julius Perdana  - Yes it is Aztec Calendar
    Hi anwar, thanks for the input Jules
  • Julius Perdana  - Aztec not Mayan
    Hi Jon, I removed the text in base of the model, but I made a mistake, it was Aztec not Mayan Calendar, so I have to design mayan's too. Jules
  • jon  - still would like no lettering.
    ahh, yes I see that you have changed it. I would still like one without any writing at all. Perhaps you can make it so that the lettering is optional, like a separate plaque that can be used or not used: for example:
