Not quetzalhead, that would be the head of a bird called quetzal, its Quetzalcoatl, which means feathered serpent, and that's what the carving's from.... but I guess you knew that as well.

I have heard of reptile-like aliens, perhaps this "Quetzalcoatl" is one (afterall, myths say that the real Quetzalcoatl [aztec sicentist and philosipher] turned into the snake-god he is known as once he was sacrificed [he was against sacrifice], maby the alien was disgused as a human to help solve our problems).

Quetzalcoatl = feathered snake and its representation is part of the leyend.

I don't really think that there's anything remotely mysterious about Quetzalcoatl. And there certainly isn't anything creepy about the Aztecs carving the head of one of their gods into their buildings or whatever that is.

Quetzalcoatl was the sun god.
