In Aztec mythology, Tlazolteotl is a goddess of purification, steam bath, midwives, filth, and a patroness of adulterers. In Nahuatl, the word tlazolli can refer to vice and diseases. Thus, Tlazolteotl was a goddess of filth (sin), vice, and sexual misdeeds. However, she was a purification goddess as well, who forgave the sins and disease of those caused by misdeeds, particularly sexual misdeeds. Her dual nature is seen in her epithets; Tlaelquani (‘she who eats filth [sin]’) and Tlazolmiquiztli (‘the death caused by lust’), and Ixcuina or Ixcuinan (‘she of two faces’) *from Wikipedia*

Hmm, I might revisit this one because I think I could have pushed this design a bit further…
