That flower with 4 petals represents the 4 directions in the universe: East, South, West and North. It is not an aztec simbol, but the emblem of Teotihuacan, an ancient culture who lived in Mexico several years before the aztecs!!!

Could it have more of an mexica influence? Im not aware of much more than it looks like a river scene... maybe would help to check for art dealers in older trade ports.
