The 2012 End Times Calendar

Circular stone cast relief, hydrostone, 180 mm diameter (7"), reaching 15 mm thickness (half inch), hand detailed in multi-tone gold, with back hanger & description label.

The remarkable galactic calendar of the Maya, preserved by the Aztecs, which demonstrates the sophisticated mathematical and astronomical knowledge of the ancient world. Like the Great Pyramid, this is a galactic “Long-Count” calendar which records the Great Cycle of our solar system’s orbit around galaxy center, a cycle of approximately 26,800 years.

All Meso-Americans believe in the periodic destruction and re-creation of the world. According to ancient Mayan tradition, the world is subject to cataclysmic changes caused by the sun every six to twelve thousand years, sometimes resulting in flood, sometimes "fire from the sky."

The calendar depicts the fearsome face of the Aztec Sun God Tonatiuh in the center and records the date 4 Ollin on which the present world cycle is due to end. Around the solar face, four squares called Nahui-Ollin or "the four cycles," represent the four previous world eras or “suns.” Each period is identified by the phenomenon that brought it to an end, water, wind, earthquake or fire. According to this calendar, the end of the present world is, on our calendar the year 2012.

The original calendar, known to the Aztecs as Cuauhxicalli or "Eagle's Bowl," is a massive stone slab about 4 meters (12 feet) in diameter, weighing 25 tons. It is reputed to have taken a full Aztec “century” of 52 years to carve and was completed in 1479 during the reign of the sixth Aztec king. It was uncovered amongst the remains of the main temple in Tenochtitlán, where Mexico City's cathedral now stands. When Tenochtitlán fell in 1521, the Spanish destroyed the temple and the calendar stone was lost in the rubble.

Missing for 250 years, it was found beneath the main square of Mexico City in December of 1790 during repairs on the cathedral foundations. Now one of Mexico's most famous artifacts, it is now kept on permanent display in the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City.
