I glued the beautiful crane from Outpost Miniature.

I orderd some backbanner from Outpost too some months ago for my forthcoming (next year) Tlaxies  ;)

Patzactli

Patzactli would be a banner? It would show this example of the codex mendoza.

But how are the feathers arranged?
Primeros said: Quetzal Patzactli, "It is covered with diverse feathers (many colours). On top, on eache side, are rows of quetzal feathers wich face wich other!

Only two rows? Codex Florentine and Lienzo Quauhquechollan they show the feathers arranged in the style of the hats of the north american indians.

Other example of lienzo Quauhquechollan show Patzactli like a war cap but with one or two rows of feathers?

One thing is sure, Patzactli is a much a hat of war as banner

My example of Quetzal Patzactli are one row of feather (error?)
Banner are made with paper, water, glue and green stuff.

Tlaxcaltec noble:

Twin banner standards are common in the pictorial sources.
The particular variety depicted is of a type associated with the fertility god Xipe Totec.

In the lienzo de tlaxcala it is shown red and yellow, but should properly be red and white (Xipe Totec Colours).

So the suit can be white (or red).

The shield, carries a skull in the aztec way and not a skull as dran on the Lienzo (too European)!

Tkank's for all.

But the most difficult is to find all the errors contained in the Lienzo of Tlaxcalla

Another bi-colored warrior (yellow/blue): a "Papalotl" warrior".

The Papalotl banner is built, always (except see exception), on the same model:
The center of Papalotl is made of one color and the ends of another.

The dress is made on the same model, main color with sleeve ends and "trusser" of another color.

Exemple (for lords):

Main color                                                           distinctive color

White                                                                         Red
Green                                                                         Red
Yellow                                                                         Red
Blue                                                                           Yellow (error on the codex Mendoza, only blue)
Green                                                                         Yellow
Yellow                                                                         Black


exeption : all in black (except for the feather on the cup , in red.


And eagle warrior, made only with one color:

Green for Tlil papalotl and black Ytz papalotl (special papalotlt)
