There are many legends and accounts about this God. One of them is that, in his fight against the god, tezcaltilopca, falls into a bonfire, leaps into the sky like a spark, and becomes Venus.

We will draw Quetzalcoatl and use various images as inspiration, including a mural by Diego Rivera, a great Mexican artist.
