This bas relief bears witness to the mastery of the Toltec artists of Tulan after 1000 AD and depicts the face of Quetzcoatl, emerging from the feathered serpents mouth. Originally a Toltec ruler and later deified by the Aztecs, he represented life, motion, laughter, health, sexuality, and the arts and crafts of civilization, such as farming, cooking, and music. In form, he brings together the magnificent green-plumed quetzal bird, symbolizing the heavens and the wind, and the snake, symbolizing the earth and fertility.

Made from stoneware clay, stainless steel and hardwood base.

Size: 54cmh x 34cmw plus 7cm stand height
