Walking With Giants

Toltec Warriors at Tula

     . . . The 15-foot-high Toltec warriors are decked out in full battle dress. Pillbox-shaped helmets topped with Quetzal plumes perch on their heads. Stylized butterfly emblems adorn their chests and circular shields protect their backs. Each one clutches a quiver of spears in his left hand and an atlatl or "spear-thrower" in the other.

UFO-enthusiasts such as author Erich von Däniken, who wrote the controversial book "Chariots of the Gods," claim that the Toltecs were in touch with extraterrestrials, and that Tula´s warriors are really wearing space suits and carrying laser guns.

Whatever their origins, these aloof giants rank among ancient Mexico´s most intriguing legacies. In bright sunlight, they are fresh-faced soldiers marching triumphantly off to battle, but when clouds hide the sun, they become brooding symbols of a mysterious, bloodthirsty regime. . . .
