To honour the the great feathered serpent Quetzalcoatl - the Aztec god of wind and wisdom - Year 6 have created mosaics showing fearsome double-headed snakes. Mosaic was an artistic technique commonly employed by the Aztecs. Unfortunately, unlike the Aztecs, we have not yet subjugated local tribes and forced them to pay us tribute in precious stones. As such we had to make do with constructing our mosaics out of coloured card.
