The plumed serpent known as Quetzalcoatl, an Aztec god said to date back 3,200 years, has been reborn in downtown San Jose as an eight-foot-tall stone sculpture. City leaders, who unveiled the work of art earlier this month, say its presence honors the indigenous people of Mexico and Central America--and their descendants who live in San Jose today.
