Sacrifice & reward 🐲🙌 new neons inspired by the legend of the quetzacoatl (serpent god) & the moon rabbit. for @wework
in mexico city.
”according to an aztec legend, the god quetzalcoatl, then living on earth as a man, started on a journey. after walking for a long time, quetzacoatl became hungry and tired. with no food or water around, he thought he would die. then a rabbit grazing nearby offered herself as food to save his life. quetzalcoatl, moved by the rabbit's noble offering, elevated her to the moon, then lowered her back to earth and told her, "you may be just a rabbit, but everyone will remember you; there is your image in light, for all people and for all time.”
been super inspired lately by mexican folklore... getting to see the original quetzacoatl statues from the aztecs was insanely cool. definitely check out the anthropology museum if you’re in mexico city. 🇲🇽
