LACMA has opened its second great archeological exhibition in the Resnick Pavilion, “Children of the Plumed Serpent: The Legacy of Quetzalcoatl in Ancient Mexico.” Geographically it overlaps the 2010 Olmec show; chronologically it’s a couple of millennia later, from about 1000 to 1600. As with the previous show, it has scores of major loans from Mexican museums. One coup is the newly excavated Mayan figure of Quetzalcoatl’s half-dog brother, Xolotl (top). It alone is reason to see the show.
