The Aztec calendar stone is a late post-classic Mexican sculpture housed in the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City and is perhaps the most famous work of Aztec sculpture. The stone is 141 inches in diameter and 39 inches thick.It weighs about 24 tons. Shortly after the Spanish conquest, the monolithic sculpture was buried in the Zócalo, the main square of Mexico City. It was rediscovered on December 17, 1790 during repairs on the Mexico City Cathedral. Following its rediscovery, the calendar stone was mounted on an exterior wall of the cathedral, where it remained until 1885. Most scholars think that the stone was carved sometime between 1502 and 1521, though some believe that it is several decades older than that.
