Quetzalcoatl - in progress by creaturesfromel Quetzalcoatl - in progress by creaturesfromel
This is a commission for wall hanging Quetzalcoatl in his serpent form. I'm still fine tuning this one. He will also be accompanied by a quetzal bird to be consistent with lore.

Sorry about the poor quality of the picture, whilst he's drying I can't really move him easily to a better location to shoot.

He's already sold but if you're interested in commissions or the like drop me a line creaturesfromel@gmail.com

I love the detail work in this sculpture. Very creative indeed. By the way, another being associated with Quetzacˇatl is Huehuecoyotl, a coyote that supposedly gave him advice after he turned human. Not trying to come across as nitpicky, just thought you might like to know seeing as you try to stick close to the myths.

This is really incredible, but I just have one comment. Quetzalcoatl has feathers it doesn't have wings, either way this is really fantastic!!! :D

How much do you want for this item?
If your willing to sell it to me, you can name your price...
Or, we could bargain for it... Please?

I'm a huge collector of this type of thing.

i have to say this is amazeing- it feels like something that has a reach in jim henson. your art is unique, of course, just reminds me of the colors and details portraied in an almost surreal sense seen through a number of jim hensons more creative productions ( ie labrynth, dark crystal, etc.)

This is also an absolute favourite of your works. Beautifully painted and the whole shape with the wonderfully bent tail is perfect. It's too bad, if this was an unfinished version, that there is no updated picture, but it still looks awesome!
I just like the snake-bird combination.
