The 12 foot tall Aztec calendar stone is one of just a few relics of pre-columbian culture that survived the Spanish rampage after conquest. The conquistadores and the Catholic Church tried to destroy all signs of non-Christian beliefs, but the calendar stone escaped.

Cuauhxicalli Aztec calendar stoneThe stone, named Cuauhxicalli but more commonly referred to as the sun stone, represents the complex and highly accurate Aztec calendar.

Much as the Hindus envision the cosmos as cycling through a series of stages from creation to destruction and into creation again, the Aztecs predicted that the world would eventually be destroyed, only to be recreated again. According to the calendar stone displayed here, humanity is scheduled to be wiped off the face of the earth just seven years from now: December 21, 2012.
