Without inspiration, no artwork will be done. What inspires me to produce art is above all the colors and culture of Central America and our gloomy future as a result of climate change.
The jaguar is the largest feline on the American continent. The jaguar has a compact body, a wide head and powerful jaws. Unlike many other cats, it does not avoid water and is a good swimmer.
Jaguars and leopards are often confused with each other because their color and markings are so similar. The difference is that, unlike the leopard, the jaguar have stains inside the rosettes. The jaguar is also much more powerful than the leopard, with shorter legs and tail.
In the pre-Columbian Central America, the Jaguar was a symbol of power and strength. In the Mayan culture, it was considered that the jaguar facilitated communication between the living and the dead and protected the royal. The Maya people saw these powerful cats as their comrades in the spiritual world, and a number of Mayan rulers had named “Balam” Maya the word Jaguar was included.
