Quetzal in the Could Forest
£7.95
Resplendent Quetzal in the cloud forest, displaying its beautifully iridescent green feathers and tail. Quetzals have long been considered divine by pre-Columbian Mesoamerican civilisations. Mesoamerican rulers and nobility would adorn their headdresses with their beautiful feathers. Due to their divine status, it was considered a crime to kill a quetzal so the birds were simply captured, tail-feathers plucked and then released. The term quetzal can also mean precious or sacred.
