Legend of the Suns, a Nahuatl document recorded in 1558, we read that Quetzalcoatl journeyed to the underworld to gather bones from the Lord of Death, known as Mictlantecuhtli, to create humans. Mictlantechuhtli gave Quetzalcoatl a conch shell and said, "sound this shell and take four turns round my circle and I'll assist you." But there were no finger holes to control the sound, so he summoned the worms to bore holes and the bees fly into the sacred shell and made it sound. Upon hearing it, Mictlantechuhtli, said, go ahead take the bones. Thus the birth of a new people, the ancestors of modern Mexicans, began from the sounding of the conch, the sacred Atetecolli (conch shell instrument), and sounds made possible by animals.
