In Aztec mythology, Omacatl ("two reeds", "Ome"-"Acatl") was a god of feasting, holidays and happiness, and an aspect of Tezcatlipoca. He is represented as a black-and-white figure, squatting and eating. As a god worshipped primarily by the wealthy, he wore a crown and a flower-decorated cloak, and carried a sceptre. At his festivals, maize effigies of Omacatl were eaten and (allegedly) the participants held orgies to honor him. He was also known as Tezcalipoca, and Titlacauan. Omacatl and Quetzalcoatl were brothers.
