Jaguar

By Jonathan Violassi

In Mayan mythology, the Jaguar is as an elusive, powerful being. Shrouded in the night sky, he is the keeper of the Underworld in ancient Mexican, Central & South American culture.

My desire with this piece is to pay tribute to this incredible animal and it's rich cultural significance. I felt hand illustrating was the best approach to capturing the mystique and quiet strength that is the Jaguar.
