This statue represents when they found Tenochtitlan. We do not know the exact day when they found this cared for people say on March 13 and others say on December 18th. According to the legend the god of the Aztecs told them to build their civilization near a river but specifically above where they would look at an eagle above a nopal and also the eagle eating a snake. And the god told them that when they found him it was the signal where he lives to make his empire. The Aztecs founded Tenochtitlan in 1345 CE Hernán Cortes in 1521 CE destroyed the Aztec civilization. But later they built the city of Mexico under the ruins of Tenochtitlan. The Aztecs were looking for teira to expand their empire. This was also the foundation of Mexico.
