Quetzalcoatl (ket-zal-ku-wat), The Nahua feathered serpent, the god of learning, science, agriculture, and arts and architecture. He is the guardian of the in-between, the sacred space connecting the heavens and the earth, where the spiritual and the metaphysical planes of existence connect to the physical plane. Quetzalcoatl’s metamorphic ability to shape shift as a feathered serpent into a man, is also symbolic of the human spirit, in that knowledge leads to transcendence, a rite of passage, one represented through ceremony and dance.

This is my journey, this is my transcendence.
