Welcome to Mexico!
Atlantean figures are carved stone support columns or pillars in the shape of fierce men in pre -hispanic Mesoamerica. This particular model is based on the 4 columns found atop the Pyramid of Quetzalcoatl / Temple B in Tula, central Mexico.
Standing over 4.6 meters (15 ft) tall, they depict a Toltec warrior, wearing butterfly-shaped breastplates, sun-shaped shields on their backs, feathered headdresses, and carry dart throwers and a supply of darts.
They take their name from the European tradition of similar Atlas or Atalante figures in classical architecture. "Atlantean" refers to the figures' supporting posture, alluding to the load-bearing Titan Atlas, not the lost continent of Atlantis.
Tula was the capital of the Toltec empire, abandoned in about 1150 AD. It is located in the state of Hidalgo in central Mexico, just 75 km north of Mexico City.
