The out going tide leaves amazingly intricate patterns and shapes in the sand.
I see this one as the plumed serpent Quetzalcoatl,Mayan god of life,
wisdom,the arts,astronomy,the calendar and the winds.
Searching the internet for an image of Quetzalcoatl, I found this mural by the celebrated Mexican artist
Diego Rivera (1886-1957). Interestingly there's a dog here too!
Another plumed serpent?
Thank you for visiting.
