Who was Quetzalcoatl?

Quetzalcoatl, which translates to “Feathered Serpent” in the Nahuatl language, was one of the most important deities in the pantheon of Mesoamerican cultures.

He was worshiped by various groups, including the Toltecs, Maya, and most famously, the Aztecs.

Quetzalcoatl embodied duality, symbolizing both the physical aspect of the serpent and the spiritual aspect of the feathered bird.

He was the god of wind, learning, and culture, and was associated with the dawn and the planet Venus.

 

 

Evidence of his worship:

The influence of Quetzalcoatl is evident in numerous archaeological findings throughout Mesoamerica.

Depictions of the Feathered Serpent can be found on various artifacts, including pottery, sculptures, and murals.

His image is prominently featured in architecture as well, such as the Temple of the Feathered Serpent at Teotihuacan and the Quetzalcoatl Temple Complex at El Tajín.

These discoveries demonstrate the widespread reverence and importance of Quetzalcoatl in the region.
