In Duarte’s mural, Mesoamerican deity Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent, returns to earth to look at himself in a mirror. Quetzalcoatl has been described as the creator-god, the god of the arts, civilization and knowledge. For Duarte, this is a moment of self-reflection, and a moment to reflect on history and the course of civilization.
The mural was one of 46 murals commissioned by the Arts Council of Indianapolis as part of its nationally renowned 46 for XLVI mural initiative.
