A hill surrounded by a lake is the starting scence of the Mexica emigration. The name of the place is Azcatitlan. The individuals on the scene are both men and women. To the right we see two pyramids. Next to the temples one sees the hieroglyphs of four men who represent the four barrios. Next to them are four houses. Next to the ant hill is the god Huitzilopochtli, in human form with the head and wings of a bird. Finally, on the right, there is a man in a canoe crossing the lake to begin the migration.
