What is the Plumed Serpent? ¿Qué es la Serpiente Emplumada?

The Plumed Serpent is one form of depiction of the main diety of the ancient peoples, Quetzalcoatl. His spirit was said to have attributes found in both the Quetzal bird, and the serpent, thus creating the name. But becasue they had a major pictorial communication system, the Plumed Serpent is not only another name for the diety, but is also another representation of him, as well as the cut shell, and his human form.

El espíritu Serpiente Emplumada se dice que tienen atributos que se encuentran tanto en el pájaro Quetzal, y la serpiente, creando así el nombre. La Serpiente Emplumada no es más que otro nombre para la deidad, sino que también es otra representación de lo.
