In 1964, the largest stone carved of America was transferred by means of an impressive maneuver of engineering from the town of San Miguel Coatlinchan, in the municipality of Texcoco, up to the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. The removal of the monolith, which represents a prehispanic water deity, detonated a rebellion among the villagers and the consequent intervention of the army.
