This is an ever-growing collection based on research of the Aztec plumed serpent god Quetzalcoatl. Extraordinary myths and novels have been written about this god, he is forever idolized on archeological sites, and murals, codexes and oral histories. He is a Mexican symbol of virility and strength, sexuality, power and resurrection. We took these traditional imageries and ideas of the revered Quetzalcoatl and turned it on it’s head, wanting to make him make him more approachable and playful but also to stretch the myth into our current day and age. How would he look today?
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
