Xipe Totec - Our Lord the Flayed.
Ruler of earth and fertility, patron of the springtime, ruler of the East. In honor of Xipe Totec, warriors, men and women, were sacrificed in gladiatorial combat. When they've given their service, their bodies are flayed (skinned) and a priest then wears the skin; this is called the "Garment of Gold." Though some would argue, I believe he is the same as Xochipilli, God of Love and Flowers; as Centeotl, God of the Maize; as Macuilxochitl, God of Games and Chance, the patron of gamblers.
