This is an ever-growing collection we began in 2015 based on research of the Aztec plumed serpent god Quetzalcoatl. Extraordinary myths and novels have been written about this masculine god, he is forever idolized on archeological sites, and murals, codexes and oral histories, and archetypal Mexican symbol of virility and strength, sexuality, power and resurrection. We took these traditional imageries and ideas of the revered Quezalcoatl and turned it on it’s head, stretch the myth into our current day and age, turning him into a goddess. These works are hand woven and designed by Mexchic. This particular piece mixes pop culture with ancient myths, their imprint on our memories, recasting ancient and outdated archetypes. This is a giant sculpture which doubles as a floor pillow. You can knot it up, spread it out, or curl it up in an infinity of ways. It's fantastic for reading a book or watching a movie in, kids absolutely love them.
The cotton textile is hand woven in Oaxaca and once we receive it from the artisans, we cut, organize then sew the pieces together in our studio, as you would a quilt.
Hand stuffed filler is included 2.7 x 4.9 x 1.7 ft Serpent 4
