This pendant portrays Chalchiutlicue (Jade Skirt), a young goddess of water. Identifying insignia are her headband and the large tassels to either side of her face. She wears a huipil (long blouse) and skirt, and is posed kneeling, with her hands placed modestly in her lap. The green jade of which the pendant is carved symbolizes Chalchiutlicue's preciousness.
