Xiuhcoatl: Fire Serpent

Xiuhcoatl: Fire Serpent

Piece description from the artist

Xiuhcoatl was a mythological serpent. In the Aztec religion, he was regarded as the spirit form of Xiuhtecuhtli, the fire deity. I went to the Anthropology Museum in Mexico City and I sketched this massive stone sculpture of Xiuhcoatl. It resonates with power and beauty even today.
