The first age in Mexican cosmogony ended with a great flood when the water deity descended to earth. Men were changed into fish, but one couple managed to escape the deluge. During this age, giants lived on earth (here, the large reclining body).“

The Codex Telleriano-Remensis, a colonial Spanish manuscript, translated into Italian with annotations by a Dominican friar working in Oaxaca, Mexico. The manuscript was likely created in Italy after AD 1566 and recounts the history of Tolteca-Chichimeca culture from AD 1195 – 1549.
