According to a mythological story widely known in Mesoamerica, the Sun and the Moon originated from the sacrifice of two gods, which where thrown into a fire or an oven. Documentary sources and iconography of painted vessels from the Classic period suggest that this myth, which is usually associated with the Aztec religion, was also part of the religious beliefs of the Mayas in the Classic period.
