I am sharing a 3d model of an Aztec Sun Stone, made in Cinema 4d.  It is based on the monolithic sculpture that is currently showing at the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City. The stone represents the aztec solar deity Tonatiuh holding a human heart in each of its hands. The Aztecs believed that human sacrifices were necessary to keep the sun moving. I learned some amazing facts about the aztec culture while I was working on this project. I wish I can go to Mexico some day to see the stone as it is.
 
The plants were made with the Ivy generator plugin from Kuroyume’s Development Zone, thanks for sharing your work guys!
