Details

"I depict a fearless jaguar against a starry sky. This is one of the most beautiful animals that exist — strong, powerful, with a profound gaze," Marina Pallares confides. Working in black and white, she creates a small-scale linoleum block print. The feline held a special place in many Mesoamerican cultures. A resident of the Yucatan peninsula, the small spotted cat was venerated by the ancient Maya, who called it Balaam. The renowned Aztec Jaguar warriors, an elite infantry comprised of pre-Hispanic noblemen, wore helmets in the shape of the jaguar, or oceotl. And the Olmec "were-jaguar" — half human, half cat — is a recurrent theme in their art.

I have two other prints by Marina Pallares, and I love them both. This small linoleum block print is no exception. It looks even better in person, with a remarkable level of detail, and I cant wait to get it framed.

"Beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I loved this the second I saw it, and had just gotten a new job and apartment, so I splurged. The quality is fantastic, and seeing it on my wall makes me smile every day. Ive since also purchased the Jaguar print from Ms. Pallares, and hope to add another print in the future -- shes just an overall wonderful artist.

I bought this as a rememberance for some friends who lost their dog. The joy in the Perrito just reflected the joy that their dog always brought me. Just lovely.
