Underwater Panther (Awakening Series)

28" x 20"
Archival Pigment Print on Rag Paper
Spanning from South to North America, the Jaguar / Panther represents the connection to the ancestors who reside in the spirit world. But it carries an even deeper symbology because it guards the “gates” to that underworld, a metaphysical world (Xibalba in Mayan) of a different dimension or realm. Many of the shell gorgets from Mississippian culture show the Underwater Panther Jaguar (the only cat that actually swims). Original medium: mixed media composite (digital hybrid combining hand rendered art & photographic imagery)
