This image from an Aztec codex, the Tudela Codex, is extremely descriptive. It shows the black paint the priest wore, bloodletting, their image of Huitzipotchli eating the heart, the altar, and more. I  don't know yet what the Spanish writing means. I think it is a great artifact since it shows so much.

I found this image at http://www.latinamericanstudies.org/aztecs6.htm. I cannot seem to find a creator for the website. I did find that the Tudela Codex was discovered by José Tudela de la Orden and is now kept in the Museo de América in Madrid.
