The ancient Aztecs called it NOPALLI and considered it their symbol. According to Aztec tradition, when this people still wandered aimlessly in the desolate lands of northern Mexico, they said that when they saw an eagle perched on a cactus, they would have to build their own homeland. Legend has it that such an event took place on a desert islet of a lake in the Mexico Valley area. Here they founded what became their splendid capital TENOCHTITLA whose name meant: “the place where I abandon the fruits of the NOPALLI cactus that stands on the great stone”. Today the prickly pear appears in the coat of arms of the Mexican Republic.
It is a unique piece, ooak.
