Vision Serpent

In Mesoamerica the snake was associated with spirit journeys and religious experience. The Maya developed the notion of the Vision Serpent, along whose coils the individual could travel to the spirit world. Within those coils human beings could encounter the gods.

In Aztec carvings and art, the open mouth of the serpent represents the cave understood to be the entrance to the spirit world or to the underworld Mictlan.
