Teacher's Guide - Aztec Empire - Quetzalcoatl Sculpture Details

This reusable guide covers 1200-1521 and such key people as Montezuma, Hernán Cortéz, and the Aztec. It is to be used in conjunction with the Aztec Quetzalcoatl Sculpture (EDU 019). Examples of the god can be found throughout the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, in the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan. The word Quetzalcoatl is derived from quetzal and coatl—meaning quetzal serpent. A quetzal is a brightly plumed tropical bird with brilliant bronze, green, and red feathers. The face of Quetzalcoatl probably had green, blue, and yellow feathers with red lips around the teeth. The terraces of the temple are decorated with massive, projecting stone heads of this feathered serpent god. The Aztec people worshipped many gods, and believed that Quetzalcoatl helped to create their sacred universe. Many of these beliefs and symbols were adopted from previous Mesoamerican cultures.
