About the work

Material: metal ,sheet plaque 5/16,stained glass

Quetzalcóatl prehispanic god, the “feathered serpent “, who is the god creator of men and who gave them the corn, is the most powerful god in Mesoamerica, is taken as a representative of our prehispanic legacy that lives inside of us as Mexicans, being ourselves also, that Quetzalcoatl.

The philosophy of the piece is to express the rich ancestral heritage Mexico has as a country, full of diverse cultures  and traditions and to honor that heritage through sharing a bit of it throughout one of its most important gods and intriguing mythological creature that is Quetzalcoatl.

The tail is a corn honoring the gift of Quetzalcóatl to humanity of such important and precious food, primordial base food in our ancestors until nowadays. The corn tail is a musical instrument, each of the kernels is a leather drum that people can interact and play music with. 

Quetzalcoatl was part of the Honoraria Project Quetzalcoatl Reborn at Burning Man Animalia 2023.
