The Legacy of the Plumed Serpent in Ancient Mexico

I recently saw this exhibit at at the Dallas Museum of Art and was really wowed. At the entrance, you'll be greeted by a giant pair of feet wearing sandals with toes as big as your head.

If you can't wait to get to the museum, take a sneak peak here from the Dallas News.

The attention to detail of the mosaics and the beautiful details in carved rock without modern tools is really incredible. The other thing that really stuck out was that not all the pieces are from the same area -- they are from various areas with bit of striking resemblance.

Check it out and let me know what you think!
