The Double-headed serpent is an Aztec statue kept at the British Museum. Composed of mostly turquoise pieces applied to a wood base. It came from Aztec Mexico and might have been worn or displayed in religious ceremonies.It is possible that this sculpture may be one of the gifts given by the Aztec emperor, Moctezuma II, to Spanish adventurer Hernán Cortés when he invaded in 1519. The mosaic is made of pieces of turquoise, crab shell and conch shell…….Wikipedia

    That looks great RD. I like the bold pattern. Is a variation or depiction of Quatzequatel? I am curious, because Quatzequatel and Thoth were are linked together somehow, and Thoth is supposedly linked to Atlantis.

  • thanx mobii….well i have had a look and can only find some reference to Double Headed Serpent Twin Deity Quetzalcoatl Coatlicue ????not sure about Aztec Mythology except that its quite interesting and this link
