Goddess of Licentiousness. The Aztec goddess Tlazolteotl was also able to bring about epilepsy - or even spare people from it. By penetrating human beings, she could send them into convulsions. On the Tapisserie reproduced here (privately owned), the goddess herself is depicted as a personified epileptic incident: foam and blood-spewing mouth, watering eyes in a red face, twisted and 'clenched' feet.
