Depicted in low relief on a ceramic plaque, the feathered serpent of Mesoamerican legend has a human face. He emerges from a bowl holding bark paper. To the Maya, he was Kukulkan while the Aztecs called him Quetzalcoatl and, in Yucatán, he was known as Tepeu Kukumaz. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association recreate a fragment of an archaeological treasure from Lintel 15 in Yaxchilan. The original is on display in the British Museum.
