Oaxacan Woodcarving: Impressive Quetzalcoatl-Feathered Serpent

Absolutely spectacular Quetzalcoatl serpent.  This mythical plumed serpent of many Pre-Columbian cultures is present in most of 15th-century Mesoamerica. Quetzalcoatl is an enigma, considered a man, a deity, a priest, a myth, and/or a legend. This magnificent piece is incredibly carved. Great care was taken to create a fabulous piece with so different viewing angles. Spectacular!
