The Xoloitzcuintli is sacred. This hairless dog has lived alongside humans in Mexico for more than 3,000 years and is believed to help souls pass safely through the world of Death, toward the evening star. The Aztecs believed that the Xolo was made from a sliver of the Bone of Life.
This Xolo is made of paper, wire, and covered with blackboard paint. It is one of many messenger animals I have created on which you can write with chalk, and ask it to carry your prayers for the journey.
