THE FEATHERED SERPENT
The Mayas called him Kukulcßn. The Toltecs and Aztecs called him Quetzalcˇatl.
The feathered serpent is the god of civilization, and connected to the planet Venus and the wind.  He represented the forces of good against those of evil. According to one  legend, Quetzalcoatl was driven from the city of Tula, the Toltec capital, and wandered for many years until he reached his homeland, the east coast of Mexico.
There he became a divine fire. His ashes turned into birds and his heart became the morning star. A major road in beach resort Cancun, where many of the hotels are, is named Kukulcan
