Mexico Mid Century Collar Quetzacoatl
The amazing world of Mayan Jewelry projects drama in this Mexico Mid Century Collar Quetzacoatl. As described by Sandy Hargrove on page 114 of her book about the topic, this collar depicts the depth of Mayan culture and craftsmanship.
Most important, this collar features Quetzalcoatl, a flying feathered serpent, worshipped by the Toltecs, the Aztecs and the Maya. Thus, this god of the winds and the rain shows up as an important influence in the invention of the Calendar. The symmetrical collar, with a Quetzalcoatl design in brass runs along each side.
This hand made piece with beautiful hand-wrought copper and brass chain represents the symbolism of the culture. Due to being greatly loved by its owner, the back shows a lovely patina. The words ‘Mexico’ stamps on each wing of the collar.
The collar measures 8″ from back chain closure to front collar tip with the width about 7″ across. Mixed metals, copper and brass, show patina that lends aesthetic to the piece. Surface scratches on the serpent images qualify as its only imperfection. This collar shows oxidation wear on the copper back.
