Re: "plumed" serpents
Could someone define a term please:
Who are we talking about?
Also, exactly which "ancient dragons" had feathery wings? What culture?
(personally, except for Quetzcoatl, I've never heard of a "feathery
dragon" and it's doubtful whether old Quetz was considered a dragon.Wasn't
it a bird?" The one that lives in the Chrysler Building here in NY doesn't
look like a dragon.)
