1/2 The Aztec Double Headed Serpent - Masterpieces of the British Museum

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLM4S2hGZDSE5f2bAv83uQnlcGgnGNpDuo
Episode 6/6 An examination of an Aztec ornament depicting a double-headed serpent, carved in wood and covered with turquoise mosaic, which is believed to have been worn on ceremonial occasions. No one knows how the piece was discovered or made its way to Europe The turquoise mosaic of a double-headed serpent is one of the most alluring objects in the British Museum Mexican Gallery. Made over 500 years ago, this icon of Aztec art is admired for its symmetry, beauty and colour. But it is also chilling and disquieting: those perfect curves end in teeth--and those teeth absolutely mean death.
