Xólotl is a Mexica deity that represents duality as he is Quetzalcóatl's twin brother. The opposition and complementarity of both allows to achieve a harmony that produces movement. While Quetzalcóatl announces the sunrise, Xólotl accompanies the Sun on its nocturnal journey through the underworld, just as he does with the dead towards Mictlan.
