Aztek double headed serpent design

Aztek double-headed serpent designOn this page you can download an Aztec double-headed serpent design.
 
The design is based on the famous image of the Aztec sculpture depicting a double-headed serpent, which is now in the possession of the British Museum. The sculpture was created between the years 1400 and 1500. It is made of wood (cedarwood) and decorated with a mosaic of turquoise and shell. The serpent had great religious value for the Aztecs. One of the most famous Aztec deities is Quetzalcoatl whose name translates as ‘Feathered Serpent’. 
 
This design was drawn by using a vector program – first we imported into it an image of the double-headed serpent sculpture and then we hand traced its contours. If you want to paint this design more realistically, browse the Internet for a picture of the sculpture and then paint your design accordingly.
