The Feathered Serpent

Quetzalcoatl to the Aztec, Kukulkan to the Maya, one of the main gods of several central American pantheons. He was variously the god of wind, wisdom, fertility-giving rain, the planet Venus, dawn, skilled craftsmen, merchants. And in my favorite version, the policer of the boundary between earth and sky.

With what has been learned in last 20 years about some dinosaurs having feathers; perhaps more to Quetzalcoatl than a myth?
The imagination runs wild at 4am with insomnia... :-)
